Reading Group


The BRAKC reading group meets once a term to discuss a work (usually, but not necessarily, theoretical) that brings together the Centre’s concerns about visionary forms of kinship, relation and community. The reading group is open to anyone interested in discussing the text in a friendly academic setting.
