What We Get Wrong When We Talk About Race

Monday, 17 August 2020 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

What do we mean when we say race? Why is it that it seems like calling someone racist is worse than the racism they display? Who gets to decide what's racism anyway?

Alana Lentin, Associate Professor in Cultural and Social Analysis at Western Sydney University, talks to Reema Rattan about her new book 'Why Race Still Matters', which argues that we need to pay attention to both when and how race matters but also when, how and why it is said to not matter. 

Monday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
