We are launching an online book club accompanying our Entanglements lecture series. With low-key and accessible meetings, we hope to bring some intellectual companionship to these challenging times. For each meeting, we will carefully select a number of chapters or articles related to the upcoming Entanglements lecture. You are warmly invited to join in the discussion.
