White privilege and anti-racism explored in webinar

A Charles Sturt University webinar about the significance of anti-racism social science research for social change and social justice.

  • A webinar at 10am on Saturday 12 September will explore ‘white privilege and anti-racism’ as part of Charles Sturt University events for Social Science Week 2020

Researcher and Senior Lecturer Dr Holly Randell-Moon in the Charles Sturt University School of Indigenous Australian Studies in Dubbo will present the webinar.

Dr Randell-Moon said, “The recent Black Lives Matter protests in Australia have highlighted public discussion of white privilege and anti-racist activism and social science scholarship.

“Public discussion of white privilege indicates the long-term effects of social science research. These concepts were originated in the 1980s and 1990s and their continuing significance indicates how important social science research is for social change and social justice.”

Dr Randell-Moon said the webinar is for academics, professionals and anyone who has questions and wants to learn more about concepts and ideas related to white privilege and anti-racism.

“In this Q&A webinar, I will provide an overview of these concepts from the field of critical race and whiteness studies and their applicability to education and other professional practices,” she said.

Registrations for the webinar can be made via the Eventbrite website.

Charles Sturt University is a partner of Social Sciences Week 2020 and information about the other events Charles Sturt is hosting during the week will be made available on the University’s news site.
