The ICMI17 website is still being fleshed out in one or two areas – speaker details and photographs will be added in the coming few days, for example – but one already confirmed talk title is that of Mark Latham, ‘The Myth of White Male Privilege’. The start of his Wikipedia entry:
Mark William Latham (born 28 February 1961) is a former Australian politician who was the leader of the Australian Labor Party and Leader of the Opposition from December 2003 to January 2005. He led the party at the 2004 federal election.
Latham left politics in 2005, after the incumbent prime minister, John Howard, was re-elected to a fourth term. Latham has since become a prominent political commentator.
A senior person at AVfM yesterday described Latham to me as, ‘the Marmite man of Australian politics – half the country loves him, the other half hates him.’ He sounds like a perfect choice to speak at ICMI17.
