Sunday May 22, 2011 – 6pm
Migrating shorebird researchers, moths and butterfly experts, philosophers, astronomers, orchardists and cooks… what might these knowledge areas have in common? If the moon guides the moth, and electromagnetics the kuaka, then how might knowledge of cosmologies – both maori and european – in turn guide these understandings? Over a shared hearty winter meal, the Keeper of the House looks forward to exploring the many such interconnections between the work of her guests.
