Reading Circle

The register reading group meets every Monday from 12-14. We select one article per week, to be read for the next meeting. which is then discussed under the direction of one session leader. The aim is to deepen our understanding of the use of the term "register" and to find new concepts and models from different sub-disciplines. 

Feel free to sign up for the reading circle mailing list to get the latest news and join our discussions: https://sympa.cms.hu-berlin.de/sympa/info/sfb1412-circle

For questions or participation requests please contact: nico.lehmann@hu-berlin.de.
