Celebrity Network Reading Group

The Celebrity Network Meeting Group is a source of inspiration and an opportunity for members of the network to share interests and new ideas on a regular basis. The reading group convenes at Roskilde University four times each semester. Meetings are two hours and include lunch. Members of the reading group are welcome to ‘skype in’ if they are not able to participate in person.
