Race & Rights Reading Group
Race, Rights and Sovereignty, in partnership with the GSA Library, presents a series of three reading groups uncovering and examining a number of books in GSA’s historical collections (mainly dating from the 19th century) that are written from paradigms that we would be critical of today, many with a colonial outlook. In these reading and discussion groups, we will explore and interrogate these selected texts collectively in order to deconstruct and consider how we can engage with these texts today, and where they are situated within contemporary libraries and archive holdings.
In the first reading group, we will examine the role of image representation in colonial texts and its impact on imaging in contemporary society.
