CANCELLED - PUBLIC LECTURE: Migration, race and ethnicity: Reimagining Australia’s identity
|Migration, race and ethnicity: Reimagining Australia’s identity : With Tim Watts, federal member for Gellibrand
Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.
How do Australians think of Australian identity? Do we see Australianness as a set of civic values and practices which, if embraced, allow all of us to be Australians equally? Or is national identity framed in terms of the once-dominant European ethnicity?
Tim Watts, federal member for Gellibrand and author of The Golden Country: Australia’s Changing Identity, will discuss the tensions and opportunities of Australia’s growing ethnic diversity. Tim will explore the relevance of once familiar Australian values; putting forth a compelling argument that we must now revisit our history “through the eyes of modern Australia”.
Tim will be joined by Professor Loretta Baldassar and Professor Benjamin Reilly who will debate some of the most vexing policy dilemmas that arise from the country’s rapidly changing ethnic landscape.
