The Walter Benjamin Research Collective (WBRC) aims to promote critical debate amongst doctoral candidates and post-doctoral researchers engaging with the different aspects of Walter Benjamin’s extensive body of work.

The WBRC was first established by doctoral researchers Agnieszka Puchlska (Queen Mary, UoL), Federica Muré ( Goldmiths, UoL), Leila Nassereldein (Birkbeck, UoL) and Sofia Cumming (University of East Anglia) in the hopes of creating an international research community for early career researchers from a variety of strands of Benjamin scholarship and facilitating interdisciplinary discussion and exchange.

The collective currently hosts monthly virtual gatherings curated by affiliated researchers and dedicated to specific texts, themes and questions.

The WBRC is supported by the Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE).
