Anthropocene Reading Group 2016/17

Coordinated by Will Davies, Richard Douglas and Nick Taylor, the Anthropocene Reading Group is meeting regularly to discuss some of the latest literature in the field.

The reading relates to Goldsmiths’ work with CUSP, but is relevant to those interested in political economy generally, environmental politics and philosophy, and more. It is open to all – academics, non-academics, students – and no registration is required.

Meetings will take place on Wednesdays at 4pm in the basement seminar room at the Political Economy Research Centre (PERC), 41 Lewisham Way, London, opposite the main Goldsmiths building (how to find Goldsmiths). For enquiries, please contact Will Davies.
