Alexandra Crosby and Jesse Adams Stein are interested in what happens when we consider repair as a design practice. Can thinking through repair help us make connections between design studies, feminism and the environmental humanities? https://repair.design/

Where: SOPHI Common Room (Brennan MacCallum 822)
Lead COMPOSTERS: Ali Crosby & Jesse Adams Stein

BYOM (Bring your own mug – I will supply tea!)
BASTS (Bring a snack to share. We love eating!)
CWAQ (Come with a question! As always we will launch the session by going around the table to hear from everyone who would like to share)
The COMPOSTING reading group is open to bodies of all genders, professions, and walks of life, including but not limited to academics, postgrad students, undergrads, artists, poets, activists, grandmas, multispecies companions, and the odd ghost. We are an inclusive intersectional feminist space, and together we are figuring out what that means, in practice.
NOTE ON ACCESSIBILITY:
*The SOPHI Common Room is accessible by elevator from the main entrance to Brennan McCallum Building on Manning Road (this entrance is already on floor 3). Enter, turn left to reach the lifts, then take the lift to the 8th floor of Brennan. Exit the elevator, and the SOPHI Common Room (822) is straight ahead. There is an accessible toilet beside the elevators on the 8th floor.
If you have any other questions about accessibility, or anything else that would better facilitate your participation in the group, please contact Astrida at firstname.lastname@example.org
