Reading Publics
Friday 29th April 1pm - 2pm

Reading is one of the most mysterious and intriguing practices, especially as it's primarily thought of as a solo or private activity. Reading communities offer people opportunities for sociability and connection. Text-centred forms of sociability both engage with, and offer resistance to dominant forms of identity, including narratives of national belonging. Torika Bolatagici, Roger Osborne and Jodi McAlister will discuss their research into text-centred cultures and communities to offer insights into the affective pleasures and challenges offered by reading. Convened by Brigid Magner and Linda Daley.

Approaching Facts: Essay, Poetry, Journalism
Tuesday 15th March 12:30pm - 1:30pm 

Our three speakers reflect on "dealing with facts" through writing practice, and discuss the limits and possibilities of the specific forms in which they write - creative non-fiction, poetry and journalism respectively.

Convened by Jessica Wilkinson, with guest speakers Delia Falconer, Kent MacCarter and Lisa Waller.
