Montreal critical reading group/Groupe de lecture critique de Montréal

The Montreal critical reading group is a group of users and producers of academic research which meets regularly to share ideas and challenge our assumptions, and those we find in academic literature, in order to become more responsible and effective allies in struggles for social justice.

Meetings are the first or second Sunday of each month at 6:00pm at one of our personal residences (in Mile End, Rosemont, Villeray, Parc Extension or the Plateau).

Readings are available in the shared Dropbox folder. Ask Andrew if you don't have the address.
