What is Recognition?
Noel Pearson and Jonathan Lear in conversation

Noel Pearson is one of Australia's foremost indigenous leaders and political activists. He titled his first Quarterly Essay, 'Radical Hope', explicitly referring to the work of the renowned philosopher and psychoanalyst Jonathan Lear of the same title.

Pearson and Lear are both concerned about the survival of indigenous peoples and the possibility to flourish under an indigenous identity within a changing world. In this event, Pearson and Lear will meet to discuss the complex question of the recognition of indigenous peoples in light of the proposed referendum on recognising indigenous peoples in the Constitution.

What is recognition? What kind of acknowledgement is involved? How does recognition affect the identities of both sides?

Join Noel Pearson, Jonathan Lear and a panel of experts and researches as they discuss these and other questions from constitutional, philosophical and psychoanalytic perspectives.

Date: Tuesday 8 December
Time: 6.30 to 8.30pm
