The inaugural session will take place in autumn 2023 and the programme is expected to run throughout 2023-24.
In 2020, David Graeber and several LSE students set up a reading group devoted to the themes of care and caring.
The aim of this group was to create a space for discussion and reflection on work that was then (and still is) little integrated into the classic corpus of anthropological teaching.
Between February and May 2020, around ten people met in the Seligman Library (now the Old Anthropology Library) to discuss, for two hours, works at the crossroads of radical feminism and the anthropology of care.
Thanks to the participants, who generously offered to share material from these meetings, we have been able to reconstruct the reading group program and the full list of readings discussed.
The David Graeber Institute is pleased to announce the resumption of this reading group.
This group is intended to be significantly different in content (it is multidisciplinary, integrating contributions from anthropology, psychology, sociology, architecture, philosophy and the arts) and form (it is decentralized, made up of relatively autonomous local sub-groups spread around the world). The inaugural session will take place in autumn 2023, and the programme is expected to run throughout 2023-24.
We hope that many of you will join us!
