Queer Conditions Reading Group

The Queer Conditions Reading Group will be a new reading group based in Birmingham. The group will be led by its members, with texts decided on collectively, encompassing literature extending from critical theory, to short stories or works of speculative fiction.

People of any sexuality or gender identity are welcome to join in the readings and the group will, in the future take place across differing venues. We hope this will allow a broader capacity, better accessibility and to stimulate conviviality with and between members of the group.

The group will explore texts with a grounding in Queer theory, but seek to hold conversation concerning contemporary issues of austerity, displacement, post-colonial conditions, and wider Feminist/Anti-Colonial/Anti-Capitalist thought.

The first Queer Conditions Reading Group will take place at Grand Union on Thursday 1 November at 6pm. Texts will be read together during the event so there is no need to prepare ahead of the session.

If you are interested in taking part please email sean [at] grand-union.org.uk

Queer Conditions will take place initially within the context of Ways of Learning, programmed with Lucy Lopez.
