Reading Group: Stereotyper

Organised in collaboration with Altalena, this reading group engages with feminist speculative fiction and its emancipatory potential. These stories, in fact, question the power relations that imbricate and regulate one’s subjectivity by opposing strange and estranging scenarios.

The aim is to open up a time-space to critically imagine with the desires and forces of the stories, by siding with them and asking: Which questions about the present time do they trigger? Which modes of being do their characters live in, which strategies of resistance do they articulate, and which possibilities do they harbinger in order to rewrite that very same present?

Open to all, Stereotyper fosters intersectional and collective practices of listening, learning, and wor(l)d-making. For further information on the readings and calendar, please send me an email.
