Of Animacy Reading Group thinks through feminist engagements with human and nonhuman agents in the material world, spanning philosophy and natural and human sciences. The readings and discussions continue to meander through a multiplicity of concepts and ways of thinking, building a vibrant web of ideas – the shape and character of which is organically unfolding over time. The gatherings foster collective unpacking of selected texts and learning through open dialogue in a democratic space, with an aim to recognise and envisage vital alliances for our daily life and political thought. Always open to all, Of Animacy Reading Group has gathered at the ICA in London since 2017.
The reading group is currently reconfiguring its activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To find out more about past gatherings, please visit the ICA website.
