Second reading group this Friday!


(23 November, 4-6pm, Northumbria University, Lipman 121)

Please join us this Friday (23/11) for the second session of the INDUSTRY IN THEORY reading group.

We will follow the same structure as previous sessions, engaging with familiar and lesser known theorists alongside a range of literary and nonliterary primary sources, all broadly relating to the theme of industry!

We are hoping to bring people together from across the arts and social sciences in a friendly and informal setting.
Our second session will be led by Andre Keil, a second year History PhD student from the Faculty of Arts, Design, and Social Sciences at Northumbria University.

We will be discussing the notion of 'Estranged Labour' from Karl Marx's Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844, which can be found here:
These themes will be examined in relation to two Charlie Chaplin scenes.
Scene one, 'Factory', can be viewed here:
Scene two, 'Eating Machine', can be viewed here: 
We will also be showing clips from these scenes during the session on Friday.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at if you require any further information.
We will look forward to seeing you all then!
