Radicals in Australian Social Work: Stories of Activism Public discussion and Book launch
Corner James Ruse Drive and Victoria Road Building EZ, Western Sydney University, Rydalmere, NSW, 2116, Australia
10th March 2018
The Whitlam Institute and Western Sydney University together host an event to explore activist social work in Australia from the 1970s onwards, its origins and its legacy. A panel discussion will look at social work activism in the Whitlam era and beyond, together with a recent graduate’s perspective on the contemporary context. The event will launch the new book Radicals in Australian Social Work: Stories of Lifelong Activism (edited by Carolyn Noble, Bob Pease and Jim Ife) and repeat the book’s call to arms to continue the "fight for a better, more inclusive world.“ The launch will be followed by a seminar, led by Professor Carolyn Noble, where contributors to the book will discuss their chapters, with opportunity for further discussion.
