What we're about
History & Power is a London-based reading group which hosts regular talks, readings and events that critically analyse the major texts of 19th, 20th, and 21st-century social and philosophical thought. We cover economics, political theory, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and semiotics and much, much more.
Most of our reading group meetings are held at the Wheatsheaf, in central London, where we have been carrying on in one form or another for over ten years.
We welcome readers of all backgrounds, all philosophical and political tendencies, and all levels of fluency with the texts presented. The only rules are the common sense ones: civility, respect, and open-mindedness are a must.
Find out more by having a look at our events - we hope to see you at one of them soon!
