Te Whare Kura Thematic Research Initiative is calling for abstracts from current and recently graduated University of Auckland postgraduates whose research is situated in indigenous knowledges. The research can be in any discipline. Papers are particularly welcome from postgraduates engaging with aspects of Māori and Pacific cultures and using methodologies that are respectful to these communities.
The symposium’s objectives are to promote emerging researchers and their work by drawing them together and interweaving their threads of knowledge though its dissemination to an appreciative audience of students, supervisors and community members. It will also be an opportunity to share research experiences, receive supportive feedback, and gain new skills through discussions and workshops. An announcement will be made shortly about keynote speakers.
Te Whare Kura’s mission is to maintain, enhance and protect the mauri (life force) of indigenous knowledges, peoples and identities, and so the kaupapa of the symposium is wide-ranging. Contributors are asked to consider situating their abstracts within one or more of Te Whare Kura’s four themes:
- Mauri Atua (Knowledges)
- Mauri Manaaki (Economies)
- Mauri Tangata (Wellbeing)
- Mauri Tiriti (Governance)
Descriptions of each of these themes and Te Whare Kura’s activities can be found on the Te Whare Kura website: www.tewharekura.auckland.ac.nz
Accepted papers must be presented in person by their authors at the Symposium and each will be 20 minutes in length. After the Symposium, the Symposium Subcommittee will investigate opportunities to publish the papers.
Abstracts of 200-250 words are to be submitted to email@example.com by 8 Haratua/May 2013. Please include your name, contact email address and phone number, course of study, department/school, and supervisor/s name/s. Put ‘Te Whare Kura Symposium Abstract’ in your subject heading. Contributors are welcome to discuss their abstracts with Dr Deidre Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) ahead of the deadline, although final decisions about abstract acceptance will be made by a Te Whare Kura subcommittee.
Abstract submission: 8 Haratua/May
Abstract acceptance: 15 Haratua/May
Symposium: 27-30 Pipiri/June at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau
Registration is open to all and attendance is particularly welcome from communities, University of Auckland staff (especially supervisors) and students, and other organisations and institutions. Te Whare Kura aims to keep costs to presenters and other delegates as low as possible and the cost of registration will be announced after abstracts have been accepted.
