For those in the eastern parts of Australia, a Marxism and Religion reading group at the University of Newcastle.

When: First meeting, Tuesday, 15 February, 2011, at 12 pm
Where: Room GP 1.24 – the General Purpose building in the new Humanities Research Institute (more info on request).
Purpose: light lunch, discussion of texts and future meetings.

My initial idea is to read the texts of Marx and Engels on religion, especially those neglected in usual discussions. However, we can agree on other texts that interest people as time goes by, as well as how much we want to read and so on.

I will initially reserve the room for two hours every fortnight from 15 February, but we can vary that should we wish.
