DiscourseNet Reading Group


We e-meet every month for 90 minutes on Zoom to discuss a pre-selected reading. If you are interested in joining in, just sign up to this group and you will receive further information on dates and readings, as well as the meeting invite. 

For our next session on Wednesday 21 October 2020 13-14.30 CEST, we will read Donna Haraway's (1985) Donna Haraway (1985) A Cyborg Manifesto: Science, Technology  and Socialist-Feminsim in the Late Twentieth Century. 

If you cannot access the essay via your university library, you can use this link

We mainly use some form of English in this group. 

If you have some questions, if you would like to suggest a reading for the next months, please send Jaspal a message at singhjn@hku.hk.

If you haven't done so already, please consider becoming a member of the DisocurseNet Association to support our various activities. More information can be found here: https://discourseanalysis.net/DN/members

See you soon! 

Jens, Luciana, Kaushalya, Jan and Jaspal
