With Dr Avril Bell.

While New Zealand was once considered a ‘land of milk and honey’, after more than thirty years of neoliberalism many in our society are excluded from opportunities to live well. This talk will focus on some of the key arguments about social inequalities presented in a new collection of papers written by many of the country’s leading social scientists – A Land of Milk and Honey? Making Sense of Aotearoa New Zealand.

As the ethos of individual choice and responsibility becomes more and more natural to New Zealanders’ ways of thinking, the book highlights the social and structural forces that shape the lives and opportunities of us all in New Zealand.

Avril is a Pakeha sociologist from the Far North of Aotearoa New Zealand. Her major area of teaching and research interest is the ongoing impact of colonial history in contemporary New Zealand society. She is the author of Relating Indigenous and Settler Identities: Beyond Domination (2014, Palgrave Macmillan) and numerous academic papers and book chapters on related topics.

Registration is essential to ensure we have sufficient space for participants.
