As part of the Initiative, Jonathan Luke Austin and Anna Leander are presently convening a reading group focused on core theoretical texts of relevance to VIPRE. During the Spring 2019 period these texts focus on imperialism, post humanism, and post-colonial thought. The group convenes academics, students, and others from the Graduate Institute, Geneva and the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. We are always open to additional members joining the group. The current schedule for Theory/Thought can be found below.
