Graduate students in GW’s English Department have launched a brand new theory reading group.
With the start of classes, they are pleased to announce the first meeting of M.A.T.C.H. (Mobilizing an Active Theory Community in the Humanities), which will be from 5pm to 6pm on Thursday, September 13th. The meeting will commence in the Rome Hall vestibule (1st floor), move to a classroom for introductions and then continue with an hour discussion of the material. Afterwards all are invited to dinner at a local restaurant.
Contact M Bychowski (firstname.lastname@example.org
) for the reading; aprox. 20 pages from The Queer Art of Failure
by Judith “Jack” Halberstam
. Halberstam will be visiting GW at the end of the September and a lot more information about that visit will be forthcoming on this blog. This is a great chance to get familiar with Halberstam’s work in advance of his visit!
M emphasizes that all are invited: “Come if you are anxious about Theory and have questions to share (in a low-pressure setting), excited about Theory and have comments to share, or want to meet people that share similar interests!
