New Materialism Reading Group for PGRs: Staff Contribution and Interested PhD Students


There are a group of PhD students in Manchester School of Art Research Centre who have a shared interest in New Materialisms. They are seeking experts within the University who have good knowledge in this field of study to feed into a reading group we would like to organise. We are interested in how art practice can be articulated through ideas and concerns emerging from New Materialisms and perhaps other related areas such as:

  • Object Orientated Ontologies
  • Speculative Realisms
  • Technicity

If you feel you are able to contribute and spare a little time to dedicate to the reading group, or would like to join the reading group, we are keen to make contact with you. Please contact: Paul Proctor (
