Reading Loop, Thursday 1 December 2011 & Upperthorpe planning

The next reading loop will take place at 6pm on Thursday December 1st in room 117, Jessop Building, University of Sheffield.

The text is Jacques Réda’s The Ruins of Paris.

You don’t need to read the whole thing – it’s in short sections that lend themselves easily to browsing, rummaging and selective reading!

We’ll be using this session to initiate discussions on the planned occursus Upperthorpe project, so if you’d like to be involved, please do come along! We’ll be retiring to the University Arms afterwards to continue our planning.

The Réda text will be a starting point for thinking about urban poetics and – we hope – will inspire some thoughts on directions the Upperthorpe project might take.

Venez nombreux et nombreuses, as the French say!
