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. 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).
As agreed at the end of last term, the reading group will begin the year with a series of readings of/on Winnicott. The reading for this opening session will be his short 1949 paper Hate in the Counter-Transference (IJPA, 30, 69-74). Free access to this is available from PEP-Web for anybody in the cam domain. Part of the session will also be given over to discussion of further reading plans, so please come along with suggestions.
All welcome. No registration required.
