BOOK LAUNCH: DEBATING MULTICULTURALISM: SHOULD THERE BE MINORITY RIGHTS?

Book Description:Around the world, we see failing attempts at migrant integration, persistent religious intolerance and racial and ethnic discrimination, resurgent national minorities, emboldened majorities, permanent minorities, continuing social isolation, and increasing extremism, including in the form of white nationalism. But is multiculturalism the solution to these problems or does it just make them worse? In this for-and-against book, two prominent scholars of multiculturalism put forward different answers to this important question. While Patti Tamara Lenard argues for minority rights as both the consequence of a right to culture and a way to redress the effects of nation-building, Peter Balint rejects minority rights altogether, instead arguing for a re-imagined liberal neutrality.Author Bios:Dr Peter Balint is a Senior Lecturer in International & Political Studies at UNSW Canberra. His research is primarily focussed on the principles for diversity, including respect, toleration, neutrality, and social cohesion. His books include Debating Multiculturalism: Should There be Minority Rights? with PT Lenard (Oxford University Press, 2022), and Respecting Toleration: Traditional Liberalism and Contemporary Diversity (Oxford University Press, 2017), which was awarded an APSA CRISP Prize in 2018. His current projects include an ARC project on ‘Democratic Resilience and the Public Sphere’. He has held Visiting Fellowships at The University of Manchester (MANCEPT), The University of Ottawa, The Morell Centre for Toleration (University of York), and CAPPE (Australian National University). In 2010-11 he was awarded a Senior Research Fellowship at The Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main on the project 'Justitia Amplificata. Rethinking Justice - Applied and Global'. He is a founding member of the Global Justice Network, and a regular editor of their journal, Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric. Patti Tamara Lenard is Professor of Ethics in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa.  She is the author of Trust, Democracy and Multicultural Challenges (Penn State, 2012), How should democracies fight terrorism? (Polity Press, 2020), Debating Multiculturalism (with Peter Balint, Oxford University Press, 2022), and Ordinary Citizens, Extraordinary Actions, a case-study of St. Joseph’s Parish’s refugee outreach committee (with With Stéfanie Morris, Karina Juma, and Meredith Teretta, University of Ottawa Press, 2022).  She is active in the fields of political theory of migration, counter-terrorism, and democratic theory more generally.  In Ottawa, she runs a community organization called Rainbow Haven, which sponsors, settles and advocates for LGBTQ refugees: https://www.facebook.com/rainbowhavenottawa/.

Noah Dillon @ UC Hub

Fremantle/Walyalup singer-songwriter Noah Dillon announces his debut album, biggest ever national tour, and shares a new single and video for ‘Nothing Matters’. Following the April release of ‘Drifting Apart’ the second take from his forthcoming LP, has all the early ‘90s tinged indie-rock elements that Dillon is known for. ‘Nothing Matters’ was written about being in a love bubble with a partner and the feeling that nothing can bother you while you're in that realm. Dillon had written the track after being inspired by UK group The Magic Gang who, like Dillon, bridge the gap between early ‘90s aesthetics with a new pop intention. The track is filled with lush instrumentation and vocal arrangements that are irresistibly catchy and memorable, with rich guitar, bass and drum syncopation that keep the song floating along with a carefreeness that is infectious. The anticipated release of his debut album, Kill The Dove, out August 12th via Dew Process and Universal Music Australia is just the beginning for Dillon. He sees the album as the first stepping stone in a long-lasting musical career and something that he's been planning for since he wrote his first song at age 16. That narrative for Dillon has never changed during that time either. He’s always found writing about the specific – his own relationships and interactions – has produced a universal appeal that has assured him that he’s on the right path as an artist and a creative force.“It’s a bit of a coming of age record,” says Dillon of his debut LP, “I was figuring out who I am while writing the record. Having a real clear vision of what I wanted to do with my life, and then having two and a half years not being able to travel was a minefield to get around. I’ve never been good at staying still. I’ve always been moving, still’s never been good for me, so it’s been such a learning curve of three years of learning how to be peaceful. When I go back to this record I’ll be able to hear where I was and how far I’ve come” Across the 12 songs on Kill The Dove (produced by Andy Lawson) Dillon shows his capability to express a broad spectrum of sounds and shades. From effervescent, boisterous pop (‘Drifting Apart,’ ‘Drip Dry’ and ‘Nothing Matters’) through to tender, introspective moments (‘Comfort Is Not The Reason,’ ‘Who You Used To Be,’ ‘Hold Me In Your Arms’ and stunning album closer ‘Don’t Go Away’), it as an album that swerves into post-punk at times (‘I Can’t’) and even boasts a collaboration with international indie punk Queen, Sarah Tudzin of Illuminati Hotties – ‘Broken But It’s Working.’ Their teaming up is yet another example of how Dillon maximised the slow time in lockdown teaming up with the famed songwriter and producer over Zoom. Noah Dillon's electric live presence and ability to write songs that poignantly capture the human condition and spirit has earned him a wide range of praise in Australia and beyond. In 2021 he signed with Dew Process, earned consistent national radio play for singles ‘That’s Just How I Feel’ and ‘Alive And Kicking’, and ticked off a bucket list item, performing triple j’s Like A Version. Dillon and his band have wowed audiences across the country in recent years with headline tours and support slots for the likes of Holy Holy, San Cisco, Spacey Jane, and Teenage Jones. They are now about to embark on their biggest headline tour to date, hitting 12 dates across Australia in August and September. The new single ‘Nothing Matters' by Noah Dillon is out now, with his debut album Kill The Dove out Friday, August 12 via Dew Process and Universal Music Australia.

Keli Holiday @ UC Hub

If you had to describe Adam Hyde in one word, the word that would probably come to your brain the quickest is 'fun'. As one-half of Peking Duk, Hyde has been behind some of Australian electronic's most lively and festival-ready records of the last decade, and on the live stage, the duo - the other half made up from Reuben Styles - are always capable of taking the energy up to 110%, regardless of whether it's in the form of a headline show or in the early afternoon of a US festival, where only a handful of people likely know their names.Born after an extensive North American tour with Peking Duk, Keli Holiday came after Adam began experimenting with music of his own, music as inspired by acts like New Order and Joy Division as it was by the more dance-focused acts Peking Duk are often listed alongside. In the burst of inspiration, he carved out 12 tracks in just four weeks - which you'll be hearing on a forthcoming debut album, still to be announced - sharing them with Golden Features' Thomas Stell who then forward it onto The Presets' Kim Moyes; both adding their own flourishes and touches to the work, making it what it is now.We Don't Have To Know was a brilliant note to kick everything off; one that really seems to amplify what Adam Hyde wants to bring through Keli Holiday. There are bursts of Hyde's signature high-energy charm - I don't think that's something you can ever take away from his work - but it's warped and morphed around this kind-of dance-rock backing, almost like a modernised LCD Soundsystem with a bit of a heavier dance music emphasis. For many (seemingly including Hyde himself), it offered a source of escapism, and an opportunity to venture away when you were stuck in the walls of your home. Keli Holiday's second single Where You Feel, unveiled today, keeps that trend continuing. Those nods to classic acts like New Order and Talking Heads rear their faces again, with Adam's spirit meeting the talent of Alex Lahey, who adds a further dimension to the track's already quite layered sound. "I added the salt and she added the sugar. I recorded the guitar chords and it felt right, without an ounce of force - it all fell into place and felt right," he says on the track.Like much of Keli Holiday's material, there's a sense of freedom within Where You Feel which is capable of plucking you away from your worries, transporting you to the world it was made amongst - California's sun-soaked coast - even if you're thousands of kilometres away in real life. "Where You Feel is sweet Mexican cola in a song, it’s the sweat dripping from your cheeks, it’s day drinking in the streets of sunny California," he continues, talking about the refreshing euphoria you can feel within the song's backbone.

Grentperez @ UC Hub

Music lulls us into a meditative state. It allows us to relax, reflect, and, ultimately, recharge.Sydney-born singer, songwriter, artist and producer grentperez unlocks this place—whether in the studio, on stage, or under the watchful eye of the computer camera in his childhood bedroom where he’s recorded most of his music to date. His handcrafted DIY pop instantly soothes on a series of releases that have helped endear grentperez to rapidly growing audiences at home in Australia as well as further afield in North America, South East Asia and Europe. Growing up as the youngest of three kids in a Filipino family, grentperez immersed himself in music during his childhood. He listened to The Eagles, The Beatles, and Queen with his dad before moving on to the likes of Musiq Soulchild. In 2013, at just 12 years old he posted his first video to his YouTube channel.Generating over 40 million YouTube video views in the last year, the newly found YouTube fame spurred grentperez on to experiment with releasing some of his own self-written and recorded music on streaming platforms. His debut single ‘Cherry Wine’, released in September 2021 shot up the Spotify viral charts across the global including landing the #1 spot in Australia, Canada, Singapore. Several singles followed in the lead up to the release of his debut EP ‘Conversations with The Moon’ in February 2022 which has seen his music grow at an accelerating pace to over 50 million streams, with hundreds of new fans discovering him daily. Outside of the streaming platforms, notable support to date has come from tastemakers including Triple J, KCRW, MTV, NPR, DIY, Wonderland, Notion, SEA Today and The Line of Best Fit.Having written his own songs and poetry throughout his teenage years, grentperez admits “on days where I don’t feel good, I’ll pick up a guitar, and it just makes me feel better. I heavily believe in everything I sing. Whatever it is, I try to put myself in a position to relate and fully immerse myself in all of the words.”Now fully focused on perfecting his own “laidback chill sound with a lot of soul,” grentperez is working hard to keep the new music flowing in 2022. Coming off the back of a sold out headline Australian tour in April and May, amidst demand for even more live shows, grentperez is back for his first World Tour “i’m cool, i promise” running through Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, and Europe in September through November 2022
