Camille Walsh, an associate professor from the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at the University of Washington Bothell, will be the next speaker for the UW Bothell Pub Night Talk at McMenamins series.

Walsh’s talk “Who Gets to Be a Taxpayer? Race, Tax Policy and Segregation” will examine the coded history of the word “taxpayer,” particularly in the context of racial and economic inequality and segregation in public education.

Pub Night Talks is a free monthly lecture series cosponsored by UW Bothell and McMenamins, featuring university and community experts. Topics have ranged from butterflies to black holes.

Walsh’s talk will be from 7-8:30 p.m. on April 30. Doors open at 6 p.m. It will be in Hayne’s Hall at McMenamins Anderson School, 18607 Bothell Way NE in Bothell.

The event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome and seating is on a first come, first served basis. The talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
