A germinar is a space of collective learning, fun, and repose. It has no learning outcomes, no requirements, no teachers, and no curriculum. Instead, we aim to create a collective that is self-run and self-taught, that looks at austerity, the neoliberal university, and immigration policies in the UK in the context of queer lives and queer theory.

We intend to create a space that is open and unstructured for people to come share ideas and intervene without the stress and the labor of organising, while still reflecting on the realities of our lives, our city, and our futures. We will avoid producing more politics at all costs.


What’s education? In this session we’ll think about the practice of study outside of academia, self-education and class composition, and Jewish pedagogy. It’ll be a great starting point for both old faces and newcomers to talk about what we’d like our germinars to be.

A short collection of readings are available, ready to download, read aloud, print or leave on a bus seat:
