Indigenising Knowledge for Current and Future Generations
Te Whare Kura: Indigenous Knowledges, Peoples and Identities Thematic Research Initiative Symposium 2012
Call for Registrations
As part of its mission to maintain, enhance and protect the mauri (life force) of indigenous knowledges, peoples and identities, the Te Whare Kura symposium will disseminate continuing and new research addressing the theme of Indigenising Knowledge for Current and Future Generations. The Symposium theme positions indigenous knowledges, peoples and identities research in a context that reflects indigenous needs and aspirations. This situation is important as it clearly articulates a vision for research at this university where indigenous knowledges and peoples are the agents, and not the subjects, of research. We have an exciting programme of events planned over the two days, including:
- Keynote addresses by Prof. Karina Walters (University of Washington; Choctaw Nation) and Dr Peter Jacobs (Skwxwu7mesh Nation)
- Peer-reviewed presentations by academics from across the university
- External research funders panel: HRC, MSI, Ako Aotearoa, Ngā Pae o the Māramatanga
- Kora (Maori Pecha Kucha) session, Friday evening: 20 images/20 seconds/10 speakers showcasing emerging cutting-edge Māori and Pacific research--by, with and for communities--igniting conversation and ideas.
- “Blue Skies vs. Needs-based Research in Meeting Indigenous Communities’ Aspirations”: A panel discussion with some of our most respected senior researchers.
- Presentations on Projects in Process from some of our Te Whare Kura research teams across a range of disciplines.
Cost: Both days: $50 (excl. GST)/$57.50 (incl. GST); One day: $30 (excl. GST)/$34.50 (incl. GST). Includes morning and afternoon teas and lunch. Please make sure to register.
