This reading group, convened by author and philosopher of aesthetics Robyn Ferrell, now an Adjunct Professor with the Centre for Law, Arts and the Humanities, will excavate the history of critical theory from Benjamin and Adorno, with a focus on theoretical work by leading figures in recent years and on contemporary issues of the most urgent importance.  

The reading group meets once a month in University House to study selected texts which will be placed online here.
