The Toronto Consumer and Popular Cultures History Reading Group invites new and returning members to attend the first meeting of the year on Friday October 17, 2003 at the University of Toronto in Sidney Smith Hall, Room 2090 (the History Common Room), from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
For our first meeting we have chosen a 'classic' for our discussion:
Michael Denning, "End of Mass Culture," _International Labor and Working Class History_ (Spring 1990): 2-39. We will also be discussing suitable meeting times for the rest of the year. (Note: For those who want to avoid a trip to the library, copies of the article will be placed in an envelope in outside of the following offices at York University and at the University of Toronto. Please read/copy them and return them to the envelopes: at York: Vari Hall 2157; at U of T: Sidney Smith Hall 3111).
The Toronto Consumer and Popular Cultures History Reading Group consists of graduate students and junior scholars, primarily from the Greater Toronto area. Now in its seventh year, the Group meets regularly (usually monthly) during the academic year. Whenever possible, discussion focuses on original works-in-progress by members of the group, but we also discuss signficant works in related fields.
Graduate students and others working in related areas (broadly defined) and interested in joining us should contact the current e-mail coordinator:
Ph.D Candidate & Contract Faculty
Department of History, VH 2157
York University, 4700 Keele Street
Toronto, ON, M3J 1P3
