CALL for ABSTRACTS

Theme: Intersectionality and Inequality: Rethinking Asian and Ethnic Minority Health
Thursday 12 September 2019
School of Population Health, Universtiy of Auckland

The Centre for Asian and Ethnic Minority Health Research (CAHRE) at The University of Auckland invites abstracts for its National Symposium 2019 on the theme: Intersectionality and Inequality: Rethinking Asian and Ethnic Minority Health.

 

Description

Intersectionality perspectives are a prominent lens to understand contemporary inequality. It focuses on the multi-dimensional and simultaneous ways in which race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, age, ability and class produce inequalities among and within population groups.

Intersectionality offers us a timely lens to revisit Asian and Ethnic Minority (AEM) health in New Zealand today. Migration policies have led to increased stratification of AEM by income and class differentials. Gender and sexual orientation, age, ability, professionalism, first and subsequent generation migration also expose particular groups within AEM to vulnerabilities in complex ways. Attention to focused populations such as ‘young, second-generation, urban Asian women’ or ‘older, professional Asian women’ is likely to be more relevant to understanding health differentials in AEM communities than generalised conceptual categories such as simply ‘Asian’.

CAHRE’s National Symposium (2019) is a forum to consider intersectionality as a theoretical tool, share innovations in methodology, and present empirical evidence from current research on intersectionality and AEM health. Among the questions we raise are: What is the state of health among Asian and Ethnic Minorities in New Zealand when explored through the prism of intersectionality? What does intersectionality as a theoretical framework offer research, policy and community practice on AEM health in New Zealand?

Hosted by the University of Auckland’s CAHRE, the symposium is a one-day event open to academics and researchers, policymakers and service managers, community practitioners and students who work in or are interested in AEM health.

We welcome abstracts for oral (20 minutes) and poster presentations on, but not restricted to, one or more of the following themes focusing on intersectionality, difference, diversity and inequality:

  • Intergenerational issues
  • Intersections of gender and gendering
  • Methodological approaches to intersectionality in Asian and Ethnic Minority health
  • Policy diversities in Asian and Ethnic Minority health
  • Regions, place and settings as health intersections
  • Practicing diversity and intersectionality in Asian and Ethnic Minority Health
  • Transnationality and health intersections
  • Health and wellbeing as an intersectional concept (for example: mental health)
  • Communities of difference in Asian and Ethnic Minority health
  • Ethics, diversity and intersectionality.
