    IRI THESys Reading Group

    Summer semester 2023/2024

    The Reading Group will gather again this semester to discuss diverse texts addressing concepts and research topics connected in one way or another with the notion of the Anthropocene. This time, we will also count on the support of IRI's working groups, who will bring texts that have been discussed during their own meetings – in some cases even written by their members. This is a way of embracing the exchange among our different groups and getting to know better the work of our colleagues at IRI THESys.

    We will meet during the following days from 10:30 to 12 pm – always hybrid at IRI THESys, Rudower Chaussee 12B, room 3.25, and online.

    For more details to join the sessions, please get in touch with Tomás Usón.
