Graham Jones will introduce John Protevi's Political Affect: Connecting the Social and the Somatic.

Elisabetta Brighi (University of Westminster) will introduce Deborah Cowen's The Deadly Life of Logistics: Mapping Violence in Global Trade.

About the Group

The 'Materialisms Old and New' reading group organises regular meetings to discuss both old and new materialist understandings of markets, rationalities, agency, contingency, power and governance. This is not a lecture course, so we will be mixing up the texts and approaching key or interesting readings in an informal and flexible way, with a brief introduction by one of the group members. If you would like to be added to the group's mailing list, please contact David Chandler.
