About

Monday 16 September 2019 | 7pm - 9pm
Free Entry


The Three Ecologies Research Group at Nottingham Contemporary is holding a series of free reading sessions every third Monday of the month at 7pm.

Come along and read together (literally, aloud, and slowly) and discuss contemporary ecology. The group reads texts and books that encompass social relations and human subjectivity as well as environmental concerns.

After finishing the last two chapters of 'Caliban and the Witch' by Silvia Federici the group is now moving on to 'Making Peace with the Earth' by Vandana Shiva.

Vandana Shiva is known by many as an environmentalist, anti-globalisation campaigner, and a founder of eco-feminism. Although this book isn't explicitly eco-feminist in content, it is a compelling exposition demolishing the myths propagated by corporate globalisation in its pursuit of profit and power, and shows its devastating environmental impact.

There will be copies of the chapters available on the day.

Free. All welcome. No need to book.
