Postcolonial Reading Group

Open to all

Our aim for this reading group is to meet fortnightly (possibly increasing to weekly) and work through key texts in postcolonial studies, taking a chronological approach.

Our first meeting is Thursday March 10th at 12pm in Samuel Alexander S1.10 where we’ll be looking at Frantz Fanon's ‘The Wretched of the Earth’; in particular Sartre’s introduction and the chapter ‘The Pitfalls of National Consciousness’. Please email if you’d like a pdf of the reading.

We  have drawn up a rough list of what we would like to read in future meetings – if there’s anything in particular that you’d like to see covered then please bring along suggestions to the first meeting, or email
