Contemporary Theoretical Network

The Contemporary Theoretical Network (Ctrl Network, previously Contemporary Theory Reading Group) is a postgraduate-led theory-focused international network based in EDACS. If you are interested in contemporary theory, or just sharpening up on secondary reading for upcoming essays, articles, or presentations, we highly encourage you to check out our website: We also host a forum and a discord for discussions all things theory, and invite you to join. We hope to use these spaces to build future events, and invite members to collaborate on their own projects!
