2017 Intnl Conference (Australia)

[Note added 18.6.17: Videos of conference materials, including presentations, will be published over coming weeks on our YouTube channel as well as in a dedicated section of that channel, here.]

A Voice for Men have just published this, be sure to catch Paul Elam’s video (4:13).

ICMI17 will be held in the city of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, 9-11 June. I hope many of you can join us. I shall be sharing MC duties with Robert Brockway of AVfM Australia, and giving a talk on the final day, ‘Let’s Get Visible: Beyond Keyboard Activism’.

The ICMI17 website is still being fleshed out in one or two areas, 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.

Note added 21.4.17: With seven weeks to go before the conference, the following design has been added to the shirt print options at the J4MB store. Delivery available worldwide.
