Born out of a semi-private feminist reading group initiated in a Berlin living room in the fall of 2017, we are now trying to read together, connect, exchange, support each other, and discuss feminist theories in a more open format. Inspired by Sara Ahmed’s claim that “the personal is theoretical”, the aim of this reading group is to engage with what is called “feminist theory” and perhaps contest, rethink, reformulate or reaffirm what’s considered “feminist” and “theory”.
So far, we have read texts by Sara Ahmed, Silvia Federici, Donna Haraway, Audre Lorde, and Trịnh Thị Minh Hà, and we decide together what to read next.
For now, the group is open to everyone but cis men (WHY?).
For the time being, we read and discuss in English.
Meetings take place on Friday evenings, every three weeks.
