University of British Columbia

The Public Scholars initiative is designed to encourage PhD students to more overtly contribute to the Public Good, engage with the public and diversify the PhD career pathway. As part of my commitment to being a Public Scholar I have engaged in things such as the PhDiva Podcast (listen here) where I discussed decolonizing/indigenizing the academy as a Pacific academic, conducted tours at the Museum of Anthropology about masi, worked with the British Columbia Ministry of Education and presented my work outside of academic conferences.
