National Maori Doctoral Student Conference 2009

1 min read

The National Maori Doctoral Student Conference 2009 will be held Oct 8-11 2009 at Puketeraki Marae of Kati Huirapa Ranaka ki Puketeraki, in Karitane, Otago. The theme for the conference is Te Mahi ki te Hapori – Working with communities.

This theme was chosen to reflect the growing impetus globally for scientists and researchers to work in communities and ask for these communities to take part in and contribute to the research process. There is a concomitant expressed need for researchers and scientists to work in more inclusive and participatory ways with these communities, particularly from indigenous communities, academics, scientists and researchers. There is also a growing need for research to be directly applicable to communities and their needs also, regardless of whether the research is engaging with communities or not. This theme offers a wide scope for interpretation, depending on your academic focus and discipline.

We welcome Maori and Indigenous doctoral students to submit abstracts and full papers for this conference.

  • Each presentation will be 10 minutes in length with 5 minutes for questions.
  • Students will present within their MAI site, and the order of speakers will be organised by each MAI site coordinator.
