Welcome to all!
This is the official blog of our unofficial reading group,
Under the theory tree.
The reading group is an unofficial community of a bunch of enthusiasts from the Centre for Comparative Literature in Hyderabad Central University to read theory and fiction, watch movies, discuss them and have lots of fun in the process.
The reading group meets every Tuesday from 3.30 pm - 5.00pm. The tentative venue is the lawn outside CIL
There is no quorum to be maintained. The meeting starts with whoever has come and others join in.
Though everyone has to participate equally, an Initiator is selected to ... ahem, initiate the discussion.
We have tentatively decided to fill the month in the following manner:
First Week: Theory
Second Week: Movie Discussion
Third Week: Theory Again
Fourth Week: Fiction
The Schedule for July 2009
7th July - Answering the Question: What is Enlightenment by Immanuel Kant
14th July - Discussion of the Movie Dev D
Initiator : Sreebitha
This movie will be screened on 10th July afternoon. For more details contact Sowmya.
21st July - Discussion of both Immanuel Kant's and Foucault's What is Enlightenment.
28th July - The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga
