CALL FOR PAPERS “Education, Migration and Translation”

June 15 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm
No Venue, NA
NA, New Zealand
+ Google Map

In educational contexts, those who experience or encounter migration in its many manifestations will negotiate linguistic, cultural and/or epistemological translation. Translation allows people to move between languages, social and behavioural norms, ideas, interpretations, and individual and collective meanings. However, (mis)translation also risks misunderstanding. Historically, translation and language loss have occurred alongside colonisation, and colonial relations continue in university ranking methodologies and academic publishing processes that privilege the English language. Indigenous perspectives demand attention to the purposes and outcomes of education…

Culture is increasingly positioned in economic and political discourse as the solution for ailing communities, industries, and cities. In a global environment riven by climate change, war, and migrations, we are told that communities with the right culture will adapt and sustain while others will be left behind. Labour and manufacturing have undergone radical shifts due to post-industrialisation, with knowledge economy paradigms creating new cultures of work and working identities. Culture is also increasingly valourised in urban planning and municipal…

Spanish food - paella with mussels on a massive platter

This special issue seeks to explore the role of food as leisure in a contemporary, mobile and ephemeral world. Our aim is to bring together narratives that bridge ‘spaces-between’ and explore the inherent tensions between food and/as leisure. Food and our consumption (and production) of it offers opportunities to explore the contemporary world. Food, it might be argued, is representative of progress. It identifies one as mobile. However while food might allow us to be, or at least aspire to…

Mobilities research is expanding in the social sciences and has strong theoretical underpinnings. But how do we ensure that new theories developed in this exciting field make a tangible contribution to our communities? For this symposium we have chosen the ‘pavement’ or ‘footpath’ as a symbol of community mobilities. Urban planning and policy is falling behind the expanding range of personal mobility devices (mobility scooters, skateboards, paws, pushchairs and more recently bicycles) that share pathways traditionally designed for feet.

With the current focus on electric vehicles, autonomously assisted vehicles and eventually self-driving vehicles, it would be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture for transportation. Much of what we rely on today was invented 100 years ago. Indeed, remarkably, the first passenger fare-paying railway started in 1807, albeit horse drawn, and the first steam engine locomotive line is generally accepted to have opened in 1860. So we could say that what we have today is both new and…

Speaker: Dr Rachel Simon-Kumar, School of Population Health, University of Auckland For the last thirty years, New Zealand’s immigration policy has been caught between two opposing claims – officially, the policy is projected as an objective tool of economics that invites suitably skilled migrants regardless of their country of origin. To its critics, however, the policy is not immune to racism and tacitly encourages ‘desirable’ migrants from European backgrounds, erecting greater obstacles for ‘undesirable’ migrants from Asia. Neutral or racist?…
