The term may be over but the work carries on… Professor Anna Reading is flying off to Hong Kong and then on to Sydney as part of her role as honorary Visiting Professor at the Institute for Culture and Society at the University of Western Sydney.
It’s the cumulation of a very busy semester for Anna: As well as being our head of department at CMCI, she spoke on Story Telling and the Restitutional Assemblage at the British Academy in September and Where Do iClouds Come From? in Budapest in October. She also published ‘Making Memory Work for Feminist Theory’ (2014) in The Sage Handbook of Feminist Theory and ‘Seeing Red: A Political Economy of Digital Memory’ Media, Culture and Society. Vol. 36. No.6. October. 748-760.
Her latest short theatre piece, “A Letter to my seven year old daughter” had another public airing at Camden’s People Theatre in London and has led to a public competition for children to write back their own thoughts on where feminism will be in ten year’s time.
