Details of the next “Inner West Council Philosophy Talk"

Title: "What do Children Know about Race and Racism?"

Speaker: Dr Albert Atkin (Philosophy, Macquarie University)

Abstract:  It is a common assumption that children are innocent about matters of race and racism. This often prompts us to think that we should adopt a 'colour-blind' approach to parenting and teaching. But is this really the case? What do young children know about race and should we be attempting to preserve their perceived notions about matters of race?
