Racism in the Australian media

Monday, 29 July 2019 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Is Australian media racist? How and, more importantly, why? And what can be done about it? We discuss these questions with Yin Paradiesan Aboriginal-Asian-Anglo Australian who is Chair in Race Relations and Indigenous Knowledges and Culture Coordinator at Deakin University, and Associate Professor in Cultural and Social Analysis at Western Sydney University, Alana Lentin. The discussion is ultimately about what we can do about creating a less racist society since, media is, after all, made up of people just like us.
