Dr Carl Te Hira Mika lecture: Dealing with the indivisible

Thursday, August 17 2017
5:30pm - 7pm
WA224 Conference Centre
AUT City Campus

This is the opening lecture for 'Ipu ki uta, ihu ki tai', the ST PAUL St Gallery 2017 Symposium. Dr Carl Te Hira Mika’s essay, Overcoming Being in Favour of Knowledge, is the basis for this keynote presentation addressing the terms ‘whakapapa’, ‘whaunanga’ and ‘ira’, troubling a reductive translation of matauranga as 'knowledge', and the corresponding idea that things may be known definitely. The keynote, Dealing with the indivisible: A Māori philosophy of mystery, raises the counter-colonial potential of mystery and Being in relation to the concepts of wellbeing, self-sovereignty and the sovereignty of things in the world.

Free and all welcome.
