IAS Reads: Fall 2021

IAS Staff and Fellows share books and articles we think you might like, too.

Before we get into our usual recommendations, though, there are two books on our minds that, as a staff, we collectively recommend. These two books are tied to the next two IAS Thursdays we’ll be hosting with Minnesota Transform: A Just University for Just Futures. Paired together, these books have us thinking about coalition building both here at the University and beyond as we work together towards institutional change, justice, and liberation.

IAS Reads: February 2021

This month, we’re reading up for events featuring two books—one on how we can reshape the University to work more thoughtfully with the greater public (Generous Thinking), and another on the ongoing resistance and reclamation of Indigenous peoplehood and identity (Translated Nation). Please join us for these events, or read along with us!
