The Reading Group has been meeting under the auspices of CRASSH since 2001 to bring together researchers and teachers from across the disciplines in the arts, humanities, social sciences and elsewhere. The core activity of the Group is a weekly reading group devoted to papers and texts circulated in advance, and this is supplemented by the organization of conferences and by participation in a network of like-minded researchers outside Cambridge. Themes over past years have included terror, visual art and architecture, cinematic fantasy, group psychologies, and migration. Part of the 2008/9 session will be devoted to readings on psychoanalysis and religion. Graduate students, teaching staff and researchers are welcome to join the Group. To do so, contact Andrew Webber (German/MML), John Forrester (History and Philosophy of Science).
The final reading for this term, to be divided over the next two weeks, will be Klein’s 1957 essay Envy and Gratitude (available on pep-web). Sections 1-5 will be read next week and the remainder the following week, when the group will also explore possible reading directions for the next academic year. If anybody cannot be present but would like to make suggestions for future reading, please contact Andrew Webber.
All welcome. No registration required.
