Myths and Realities 15: Out ethnicity and identity – what does it all mean?

October 10, 2012 969

Public event at The British Library, 13th November 2013, 6.30pm – 8pm, £7.50 or £5 (concessions)

Our Myths and Realities series looks at significant public and social issues, challenging some of the common myths and assumptions we make and shows the role social science plays in explaining and understanding our social world and our perceptions of it.

Myths and Realities 15 will look at whether the public’s obvious delight and celebration of all the diverse members of Team GB, irrespective of individual ethnicities and identities, marks a significant shift in public perceptions towards ethnic identities. What does it mean to be ‘mixed race’? What does ethnicity mean for our image of ourselves and others?

Join a panel of speakers including:-

Chair: Rania Hafez, Director of Post-Compulsory Education at the University of East London and Director of the network Muslim Women in Education.

Ann Phoenix, Professor and Co-Director of the Thomas Coram Research Unit, Institute of Education.

Mini Song, Professor of Sociology, University of Kent.

The event will be followed by a pay bar. To book tickets see our main website here.
