Join us for the annual National MAI Doctoral Conference, which will be held at Puketeraki Marae, North Otago, 14 -17 November 2019.

MAI ki Otago, together with Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, looks forward to hosting Māori postgraduate students from all over Aotearoa New Zealand for this premiere Māori graduate event.

All Māori post-graduate students enrolled in any discipline are welcome and encouraged to attend. The conference theme this year is "Voyage to a New Horizon”, which reflects our whakapapa as Polynesian voyagers on a new journey of discovery with our postgraduate research.

This is a unique Māori multidisciplinary annual occasion to come together and be inspired by one another. It provides an opportunity to network with other Māori scholars and get feedback about your work from a supportive audience, and even if you have just started your PhD you can get some valuable ideas and direction.

2019 Nov 14 9:00 AM to 2019 Nov 17 5:00 PM
