Krushil Watene (University of Auckland, New Zealand)

In this three-part interdisciplinary graduate student workshop on Indigenous philosophy, Watene and participants first discuss key concepts in Māori Philosophy – particularly kaitiakitanga (stewardship). Next, the seminar delves into methods of philosophical inquiry found within many Māori communities (and how Indigenous communities are reclaiming their philosophies). To conclude, Watene and students explore how Indigenous philosophies are manifested in (and are transforming) policy and law.

While detailed philosophical knowledge is not required, advance preparation / pre-readings and active participation through class discussion is essential.

Space is limited: express your interest in participating by March 11, 2024.

This event is part of Krushil Watene’s mini-residency as 2023 Jeannette K. Watson Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Humanities.
