Protest & Persist: Identity Politics

Identity politics has received a lot of flak lately – from former Labor politician Mark Latham to far-right conservative commentators. Do identity politics play a pivotal role in comprehending the structural barriers that subjugate marginalised minorities, or is there a better alternative? In this debate, you’ll hear from our two opposing teams as they dissect everything they hate and love about identity politics.

This is a free event. No bookings are required.
