Reading group

Below you will find information about the meetings and links to literature.

In the folder called Texts you will find an archive of all the literature we have read and a file with the complete references for the literature. This list will be continually updated.

There is also a reference manager file for those who want to import the references directly into their reference manager. The file is a RIS file which most reference management softwares support.
