Contemporary Questions

Gender Identity / Race and Racism

19 Jul 2018 - 26 Jul 2018

Join philosophers, writers, artists and activists from across the country for a collaborative discussion exploring issues that are at the forefront of contemporary social debates: gender identity, and race and racism.
 
These two panels pose questions to how we live together; what counts as an answer; and who gets to decide? 
 
 
Gender Identity 
19 Jul, 6.30-8.30pm
The idea of gender identity is fast making its way into public awareness. But what exactly does having a gender identity involve? Does everyone have one? And what role should it play in society? 
Join Katharine Jenkins, CN Lester, Maria Munir and Onni Gust in conversation.
 
 
Race and Racism 
26 Jul, 6.30-8.30pm 
Racism has a long history, and constantly takes new forms as societies change. But what exactly is racism, and how do we identify it? What effects can racism have on the people who are targeted, and what should be done to end it? 
With Panya Banjoko, Aness Webster and Karen Salt.
 
 
Free. Booking required
