TALKS | Has identity politics gone too far?

— Arnolfini
Presented by Mandem, in partnership with Arnolfini - "Mandem wants to engage young people in social issues without boring them."
time:19:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

In recent times two words have come under increasing scrutiny. The term ‘identity politics’ is frequently dragged through the dirt by commentators on the right who associate it with ‘political correctness’, which they deem a threat to freedom of speech. At this event we want to interrogate the negative backlash against ‘identity politics’ and decipher whether it holds any credibility. After all isn’t all politics based on some form of identity?

The questions we will explore at this event are:

- What is ‘political correctness’ and is it genuinely a threat to freedom of speech?

- Is it possible to deal constructively with a colonial legacy without engaging with a politics of identity?

- Are there examples of identity politics being misused within our community, and if so what responsibility do we have to address and call this out?

Panel guests:

Daniel Edmund

Vanessa Wilson

Olumide Osinoiki

Marcus Fagon

This event will include a 30-minute Q&A session with the audience.
