The Feminist Duration Reading Group (est. 2015) explores under-appreciated feminist texts from outside the Anglo-American feminist tradition. This event launches the group’s year-long residency at the SLG focused on under-known feminisms in the UK. The group welcomes feminists of all genders and generations to explore the legacy and resonance of art, thinking and collective practice from earlier periods of feminism, in dialogue with contemporary practices and movements.

No advance reading is required, texts are read aloud during the event.

Anyone interested in learning about the group, and participating in the collective process of developing a programme around intersectional feminism past and present, is invited to attend. The session will include the reading of a score, derived from feminist lyrics, quotes and protest chants, and the creation of small groups to research and lead future sessions.
