I am a PhD student just about to enter my second year and hoping to start a Feminist Reading Group within SSIS for postgraduates, undergraduates and academics from all the SSIS disciplines. The idea is to have a forum for people (men welcome too!) to come and discuss their ideas in relation to specific readings set each week/fortnight or a paper given by a member of the group if anyone is interested in doing this. The exact form it will take depends upon how much interest there is and from whom, which readings and theorists people would like to discuss, how often they would like to meet and for how long and so on.
If you are interested please email me and let me know when are good times for you to meet and what your interests are and I will set up a time for us to get together to discuss how to take the reading group forward. Or email me if you have any questions before deciding whether you would like to be involved!”
