Introducing The Climate & Colonialism Reading Group

  • 9 February 2023

As part of the multi-year Climate & Colonialism project led by Dr Sria Chatterjee at the Paul Mellon Centre we are launching The Climate & Colonialism Reading Group.

This interdisciplinary Reading Group aims to provide a space for discussion and reflection about the role of the arts and visual cultures in discourses around climate and colonialism. The Reading Group will be hosted by the Paul Mellon Centre in collaboration with Anisha Palat and Eszter Erdosi (PhD candidates in History of Art at the University of Edinburgh). Sessions will take place online with some space for hybrid events, allowing people to attend regardless of time zone and geographical location. The Reading Group will meet once every two months, beginning in February 2023.

This launch event for the Reading Group is on 23rd February and will discuss two readings by visiting scholar Astrida Neimanis, who will be present at the event alongside facilitators Anisha Palat and Eszter Erdosi (PhD candidates in history of art at the University of Edinburgh).
