Antiracist reading group with Stillpoint Magazine
This group will meet biweekly via Zoom, on Wednesdays at 6-7:30pm GMT / 7-8:30pm CEST.
The aim of this reading group is to create a space for friends and supporters of Stillpoint Magazine, and members of the Stillpoint Spaces community to engage with the urgent issues of race, racism, and antiracism through works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual art, supplementary and contextualizing materials in the humanities, social sciences and visual arts. This interdisciplinary approach can allow for those across professions and disciplines—especially mental health clinicians—to explore new avenues for discovery and reflection on the complex, challenging issues of race and racism, with a focus on continental Europe and the United Kingdom.
Texts have been selected by Anne Marie Wirth Cauchon and Kate Holford, Founding Editor and Art Director of Stillpoint Magazine, founded by Dr. Setterberg as Publisher. While the approach of the Antiracist Reading Group will rely on the collective efforts of all participants, Kate and Anne Marie will facilitate and look forward to learning from participants and our group process.
How we do what we do
A space for reading, reflection, introspection, communication, and understanding: At the beginning of this Antiracism Reading Group, we will together build the guidelines for discussion and engagement, so that the standards and expectations for creating a safe yet challenging space are as clear as possible to all of us. The biweekly discussions will take place on Zoom, and will last 90 minutes. A link to each meeting will be provided in advance.
