Call for presentations: Mahi Tahi panel at ASAA/NZ 2019 Breaking Boundaries conference

This is a call for graduate anthropology students to participate in the Mahi Tahi panel of the ASAA/NZ Breaking Boundaries Conference ki Whāingaroa (Raglan) in November this year.

This panel is an opportunity to showcase some of the mahi that students are working on. We invite all graduate students engaged in Māori research to submit an abstract. There is no set format for Mahi Tahi presentations, a main goal being to share kōrero on research ideas and topics as well as grow student confidence in presenting in academic spaces.

The overriding kaupapa of this conference is “breaking boundaries” and participants should attempt to fit within this framing. How this is interpreted and created as a 10-15 minute presentation is at your own discretion. Examples include but are not limited to: poster presentation, seminar presentation, video, photography, waiata, and so on. Students are encouraged to critically engage and/or challenge the practices of anthropology through, for example, reinforcing Māori and indigenous voices, values, experiences, worldviews and practices.

Please email your abstract (up to 200 words) to, and include “Mahi Tahi” in the subject line. Abstract deadline is September 6, 2019.

Panel convenor: Mona-Lisa Wareka,

Kia ora rawa atu, ngā manaakitanga.
