Hello world! So far, 2019 is being very kind to me and sending lots of exciting projects my way. One such opportunity is a talk I’ll be giving in Amsterdam at the Pakhuis de Zwijger for the Week Against Racism discussions series! The event has been co-orgnanised by Gloria Holwerda-Williams of the InterNational Anti-Racism Group and takes place on the 19th March.
There will be a number of presentations during the evening, from parents, teachers, researcher and campaigners, each giving their own perspectives on how children experience race and racism in Dutch schools, as well as learn about race and racism, too. My own presentation will tackle how ideas about whiteness are taught to children and how this goes onto promote a white nativist complex throughout society, using my own personal experiences as a new parent, in addition to conclusions gained from my research and work with ERIF, I will discuss with the audience.
There is still some time to reserve a seat, so if you want to be a part of this very important conversation, you can find all the information you need via the venue’s website. Can’t make it? The event will also be livestreamed.
Hope to see you there! ❤
