Venue: Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Board Room, Māori Studies Complex, Rehutai Building, The University of Auckland (Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau)
Host: The Mauri Tangata Research sub-theme Whare Kura, Faculty of Arts, The University of Auckland
The Mauri Tangata: Well-being and Identity of Te Whare Kura invites you discussion with Professor Karina Walters around the possibilities of and challenges of indigenous research collaboration.
Karina L. Walters is a Professor and William P. and Ruth Gerberding Endowed Professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Washington. She received her MSW (1990) and PhD (1995) from University of California, Los Angeles. An enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, Dr. Walters founded and directs the University-wide, interdisciplinary Indigenous Wellness Research Institute (IWRI).
This discussion will attempt to identify the ways that we can collaborate and share our work as a community of indigenous scholars. What do we need to do to enable us to work together so that the benefits of this work can accrue to our communities? What creative ways can we envision that will take into account capacity issues but ensure that knowledge and experience can be shared in ways that align with indigenous practices? How can we enhance what we do in a way that resonates with our communities and progresses knowledge development in our institutions?
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 19/3/2012 as the facility has limited seating.
