Reading Group: Acts of Imagination

Isobel Dryburgh

ACTS OF IMAGINATION: A reading group exploring how the past can be rewritten and remembered.

Join us for a Reading group! Set aside some time to focus on texts and share ideas among a small group. This year we will be looking at fiction, creative nonfiction and memoir that specifically look at history and colonial narratives through a contemporary lens. We will put fiction/creative nonfiction/memoir in dialogue with theory while considering how stories are told and retold over time. What methodologies allow us to reconsider the narratives of the past? 

We will read parts together and then reflect and talk as a group. There will be wine, coffee and tea. Feel welcome!
