About the Presenters

Professor Dominic O’Sullivan

Dominic O’Sullivan (Te Rarawa) is a Professor of Political Science. His work encompasses the disciplines of political science, education and public theology with indigeneity providing a unifying scholarly theme. His work examines relationships among liberal democracy, citizenship, public sovereignty, and indigenous self-determination in New Zealand and internationally. His original application of a liberal theory of indigeneity to policy questions of health, education, local government, and economic growth is the first systematic attempt to explain liberal democracy’s potential for culturally framed indigenous democratic citizenship – an innovative and profoundly important blending of Western and indigenous political theories. Professor O’Sullivan’s work on differentiated liberal citizenship focuses on how indigenous peoples exercise political authority in relation to their own communities and according to their own means, while also participating in the public life of the state with meaningful influence. He contributes to broader debates and public awareness of political affairs as an expert commentator for news media in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere.”.

Professor Tim McCreanor

His broad public health orientation and interest in the social determinants of health and wellbeing, provide a platform for social science projects that support and stimulate social change. In particular his research seeks to foreground, critique and redress the mechanisms of talk, text and other forms of communication that operate to produce, maintain and naturalise the disparities, exclusions and inequities so evident in our society. Discourse analysis and other qualitative methods have been a central theme in Tim's approach to research domains around ethnicity and culture, inclusion and exclusion and health inequalities. Key topics include racial discrimination, youth wellbeing, alcohol marketing, media representations and social cohesion.
