Bi-weekly reading group centered on contemporary Middle Eastern thought.  We gather to read selected passages from the texts and critically examine the materials in relation to our own practices. We will begin by reading Jalal Toufic’s Love Dies and then move on to books by Reza Negarestani, Etel Adnan, Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh, and others. All levels and backgrounds are welcome, from curious first-time readers to folks who have been engaging with the material over a long period of time.  

For questions about this reading group and/or to join the group, please email Grant Kerber @
