The Invisible Community College is a study group dedicated to Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles moderated by Popjellyfish, Trevor Blake and me. Weekly reading assignments will be sent to a mailing list for one year beginning January 23, 2011. If you would like to participate, you must sign-up for the mailing list before then.
There will be monthly public, in-person discussions in Portland, OR based on the reading. Those in other cities are encouraged to organize their own study cells.
Registration is Now Closed

If anyone in the NYC metro area is participating, I’m trying to organize group meetings on Sunday evenings at a yet to be determined spot, likely some purveyor of spirits, woo. E-mail licensefarm AT Yahoo DOT com to get on-board.

Incidentally, I’ve just regained most of my IRL collection.
Will definitely hold a study group here in the Emerald City. I’m freaking excited!

I still wear my blank button on my backpack. Maybe I should start a group based around The Filth.

I just found out about this too – I’ve been offline for several weeks due to moving house and have only just got on. I’m in Australia – if it’s not too late for latecomers I’d love to know.

in Tempe, AZ area and looking for someone willing to let me read from their copies of Anarchy For The Masses, and Our Sentence Is Up until i am able to get my own copies. (which will happen soon) if a discussion group formed it could be cool. blurabbit 147 at yahoo dot com. reading The Invisibles has always heralded/kicked off some period of change. interested to see what an organized study will bring.

Any reports on how this has gone? I only just found this a month ago and I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bummed that I missed it!!! Would love it if any forums or digital discussions or presentations were made available to the public.
Any chance of a second semester?
