What is it?
Read my initial post here.
A casual project for all who want to join me in reading recent-ish academic non-fiction at the intersections of race/gender/sexuality. We’ll settle on a topic and either 1-3 articles/chapters or a book for disussion every or every second month.
Discussion forum: Slack
Since twitter has a character limit and google docs isn’t great for discussions, I’ve decided to steal the Social Justice Book Club’s idea and go with Slack. I want to join some of their discussions and I know some of you have or want to join, so this might make it easier for all. Also, on Slack we’ll be able to share reading materials and such.
Here’s the invite link, the group is diversestudygroup.slack.com:
-> This invite will work for 1 week from today (Jan 19th)!
I’m hopeful we’ll be able to discuss further details on Slack once we’ve all got the hang of it, but you can always contact me in the comments, via e-mail (ifyoucanreadthis at hotmail dot com), or on twitter (@Bina_ReadThis). I’ll add any news to this page as well.
