Kritische AmerikanistInnen Theory Reading Group First Meeting

02. May 19:00 - 21:00

Kritische AmerikanistInnen is a reading group that seeks to stimulate a discussion within the framework of cultural studies by focusing on texts outside of the theoretical corpus, i.e., Critical Theory. By opening the debate to further perspectives, we hope to expand our understanding of society and culture, and promote a more critical engagement with conventional ideas of, e.g., culture, society, race, class, or theory.

We invite anyone interested from B.A./M.A. students to doctoral candidates to join us.
