Publisher's Summary

Progress is a constant state of learning and unlearning.

Writer, curator and producer Liv Little questions our modern understanding of big subjects – consent, race, transness, disability and body image – by learning more about their past.

Unlearn addresses a series of uniquely modern dilemmas: how did we get to the point where couples verify consent to have sex with each other via an app? How has our language about trans issues become so problematic and challenging? Is it possible for us to unpick the toxic understanding we have of our own body image?

Liv talks to contributors from across generational lines about what they’ve learnt and unlearnt during their lifetime in relation to these subjects. Has the progress that was made by each generation been positive? Or has it set us up for a more complicated present and future? And if progress is a constant state of unlearning the knowledge that’s passed on from generation to generation, what comes next?

A great start for everyone.

This is a short collection of conversation starters around the tough topics in society today. Too often we hear from people outside these groups trying to make sense of what we “should” be doing. This is an educational and inspirational set of interviews that will encourage you to review your biases and dig a little deeper. Easy listening, digestible and real.

Not sure.

Touched a few good points, but at the same time, seemed to be doing what she was accusing the media of doing by pushing her agenda, is what it seemed like. not everything is in black and white. and not everyone has to agree with you.

these are great to listen while on a drive or whole doing chores. then find a friend with to discuss. challenge your thoughts. The body image chapter was very interesting. we are changing
