Four wonderful Women In Parenthesis Reading Groups are just starting – now is the perfect moment to join one (in London, Liverpool, Oxford and Durham) or to start your own. You’ll find everything you need here to follow along with the groups or to set up a group where you live.

In London

In London, the group will meet on Thursdays 6-7pm, at the main lecture hall at the Royal Institute of Philosophy, 14 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0AR. All are welcome. Any queries, please contact Wartime Quartet Reading Group <>. The reading group will run alongside RIP’s Wartime Quartet lecture series, dedicated to the work of these women, as a complementary resource. The meetings start on 18 October. These sessions will be taken by Ana Barandalla, Research Associate at In Parenthesis, and Hannah Marije Altorf, Reader in Philosophy at St. Mary’s University.
