I’ve recently began to organise a virtual Progress Studies reading group. We’re still in the early stages of launching it (organising the reading agenda and a time that suits everyone). Everyone is welcome to attend. A few details:
The format we’re going for is that one person every week is selected to summarise the designated reading and present that summary to the rest of the group. We then proceed to discuss that topic.
If you would like to join, we’re organising/communicating via the Progress Studies Slack channel. We’re still in the process of setting the agenda for what to read, so feel free to join and suggest things you find interesting (this can be journals, blogs, books, podcasts, etc.). So far we have approximately 5-10 people interested, including Jason Crawford (Roots of Progress) and Sam Hughes (Centre for Global Development).
I’m on Twitter @krisgulati, where I tweet about the causes and consequences of progress, economic growth, technological change, and innovation. I have made a Progress Studies subreddit to foster discussion. You can follow my work on the Progress Studies LinkedIn page or the Progress Studies Facebook page.
