Difference Differently

Today, we discussed with passion, listened intently and laughed like hyenas at the Pacific Spaces Reading Group at AUT’s School of Art & Design.

The guest lecturer who led this incredibly stimulating discussion was leading anthropologist and academic Dr Amiria Salmond.

Heavyweights in intellect, heart and soul, Dr Lealiifano Albert Refiti, Professor Dame Anne Salmond, Hufanga Professor Okusitino Mahina were there, presenting alongside current academics, lecturers, postgraduate students, museum and cultural heritage experts, artists as well as anthropologists and sociologists on topics such as the ontological turn, perspectivism time or bomb through to non-identity politics.

Thank you Lealiifano for the chance to read, consider and situate rigour, humanity and humour in the same room.
