      EVENT DETAILS
      The MsAfropolitan Philosophy Book Club: Mistaken Identity (Gower Street)

      The MsAfropolitan Philosophy Book Club is a monthly book club where we discuss philosophical books from all over the world by people of diverse backgrounds. Led by Minna 'Ms Afropolitan' Salami, the books we’ll read are less about philosophy as an academic subject, but rather the books are selected with the mindset that philosophy is about investigating all human experience. We may therefore include philosophical novels and poetry too. This month's book is Asad Haider's 2018 book Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump, a passionate call for a new practice of politics beyond colorblind chauvinism and "the ideology of race." Drawing on the words and deeds of black revolutionary theorists, he argues that identity politics is not synonymous with anti-racism, but instead amounts to the neutralisation of its movements. Our conversation will be fun, light-hearted and informal – in other words, nothing like a serious seminar on philosophy! Takes place in our third floor Philosophy section. Tickets are £8/6 (students/Waterstones cardholders) and include a glass of wine or soft drink. Book ahead as places are limited.
