Using the form below please sign up to receive the reading for this month

This year we are doing something different and providing extracts of certain books and organising a monthly podcast where we discuss with either the author or with others themes, research and the broader context of their work. There is no pressure for you to discuss these books nor participate in any conversation, rather the intention is merely to share knowledge and the work of some of our favourite writers. We only share extracts of each book, but encourage you to support small and local presses and independent bookstores.

If you feel like discussing these readings please email us, likewise if you have any texts you feel would be beneficial for us to read. 

Much of our interests lie within ideas around critical theory and discourse, decolonisation and radical political action. 

As much as we like to write, we love to read



This month we will be reading 

Antonio Gramsci's The Prison Notebooks

You can download this pukapuka here

To join our discussion with Giovanni Tiso about the life, work and relevance of Gramsci's work, please email us on


To begin this year we will be reading 
The introduction and first chapter 
by Te Arawa and Ngaati Awa academic, Dr Maria Bargh. 
In the following panui club in Poutuu te tangi we will send out a podcast between ourselves and Bargh discussing this work

The podcast is also available here
