Date:
3 April 2019

Time:
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Location
Continuum Meeting Room, Level 3, 75 Talavera Road


Panel discussion: Amy Thunig, Dr Paula Abood, Dr Waqas Tufail, Atem Atem, Dr Randa Abdel-Fattah, moderated by Dr Alana Lentin

Anti-racism is often dismissed as political correctness or identity politics. To speak out and act against racism is to attract accusations of ‘playing the race card’ or ‘shutting down free speech’. At a time when collective mobilization that makes demands on the state is delegitimized in favour of individualised activism that celebrates racial illiteracy, academics and activists are challenged to build new modes of participation, activism and political communities.

What are the stakes, the threats, the challenges, the lessons, the hopes and goals of anti-racism work today? In this panel discussion, academics and activists reflect on their experiences of ‘speaking out’ against racism and injustice.
