Indigenous Australia, Philosophy and Australian Rules


Drawing on events surrounding the sustained booing of Adam Goodes in the Australian Football League 2013 and 2014 seasons, this free, NAIDOC Week event that will be held as part of the Centenary Conference of the Australasian Association of Philosophy, will focus on racism in Australian public life. This free public philosophy event will involve a screening of Ian Darling’s masterful documentary, “The Final Quarter”, followed by a three-person panel, chaired by the AAP’s Professor Rob Wilson, to discuss the history and contemporary nature of racism in Australian sport and public life.  All members of the public are welcome to attend, but space is limited.
