Amanda Dunn with Benjamin Law and Michael Carr-Gregg on Puberty

Recent studies have found that puberty is occurring much earlier today than in preceding generations. What are the causes of this accelerated path to maturity? How are we educating children about puberty – and how well are schools, parents and carers equipped to help children cross this vital bridge to adulthood?

The panel for this event features our very own Amanda Dunn, as well as adolescent psychologist and author Michael Carr-Gregg, and Benjamin Law, whose recent Quarterly Essay, Moral Panic 101, delved into the bruising ideological fight over Australia’s Safe Schools programme. Hosted by Madeleine Morris, the panel will answer your questions on what to expect and how to survive puberty today.

Amanda Dunn is the politics and society editor for The Conversation. Prior to that, she was a reporter and editor with The Age for 16 years. She is the author of The New Puberty, released 2017.
