Course 904 – Contrasting cousins

Saturday 23 March from 2pm to 4.30pm in the Education Room at Cook

Dr Cathy Day is the Research Manager at NCEPH at the ANU.

Cathy will discuss skin colour, what causes variation within families and between groups of people and what the consequence can be for people whose appearance is different from the average for their family or their community.

She will follow the life trajectories of two cousins descended from ‘white’ and ‘brown’ sides of the same family:a colonial administrator in India and Africa, and Prime Minister of a small country; and Joyce Wilding, an activist for Aboriginal rights in Brisbane in the 1950s and 1960s.
