CERN Aotearoa New Zealand
CERN Aotearoa New Zealand meets the last Friday of each month, 1pm to 3pm (NZ time), by Zoom. Members are from Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. Meetings start with members doing a ‘go round’ to catch up with each other and then there is discussion of a reading. The group uses a shared Google docs to record reactions and thoughts on the readings.
For the first half of 2023, the group is reading Hospicing Modernity: Facing Humanity's Wrongs and the Implications for Social Activism by Vanessa Machado de Oliveira (with a focus on doing the exercises in this book). For more on this reading, click here.
In 2022, the group read articles from the 2022 Special Issue of Asia Pacific Viewpoint on ‘Surviving well: From diverse economies to community economies in Asia-Pacific.’ Many of the articles in the Special Issue were written by members of CERN Aotearoa New Zealand.
