Description

Sexuality, Schools and the Media

Benjamin Law in conversation with Fenella Kernebone

Are Australian schools safe? And if they’re not, what happens when kids are caught in a bleak collision between ill-equipped school staff and a confected media scandal?

In 2016 the Safe Schools program became the centre of an ideological firestorm. For the 67th Black Inc Quarterly Essay, Benjamin Law explores how and why this happened. He weaves a subtle, gripping account of schools today, sexuality, teenagers, new ideas of gender fluidity, tabloid media scares and mental health.

Benjamin comes to the Library to talk about the issues raised in this timely essay.

Presented in partnership with Quarterly Essay.
