Dissertation Talk: Perspectives on Maori-led Housing with Jack Barrett

Community Housing Canada and Civida would like to invite you to a dissertation talk, given by Jack Barret, on July 6th from 3:30 to 4:30 at the Civida Corporate offices located at 10232 112 St NW in Edmonton, Alberta. The presentation will be in-person with a Zoom-in option for interested parties. The talk will be approximately 1 hour long with half an hour allotted for discussion afterward.

Here is the topic of the talk:

Jack is a third-year Ph.D. student in Geography at Waipapa Taumata Rau, The University of Auckland in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Supervised by Larry Murphy and Tom Baker, his research aims to understand how Māori, the Indigenous peoples of Aotearoa New Zealand, might enact housing aspirations and the challenges they face in doing so. Through an ethnography and participant observation with a Māori-led housing enterprise, his research aims to illuminate the on-the-ground experiences of Māori housing provision and situate them within their wider institutional environment. Through this, Jack will discuss preliminary findings from his Ph.D. covering themes such as Indigenous self-determination, financialization and the creation of a diverse, Indigenous-led housing economy.

Please feel free to share this with your networks! We have space for 25 people in-person (and unlimited on Zoom).

Hope you can make it!
