CHE PhD Confirmation Seminar 18-Mar-2016: Health, Well-being and A Good Life: An ethnographic study of young Pasifika women in Melbourne

9:30am-10:30am, Fri 18th March 2016

Seminar Room 515, Level 5 207 Bouverie St, Carlton

PhD Candidate: Lila Moosad

There has been limited academic engagement with Pasifika health concerns in Australia despite increasing numbers of Pasifika settling here. Existing health literature about Pasifika populations is framed around biomedical discourses of pathology and risk. This ethnographic study will explore the health understandings of young Pasifika women in Melbourne, understandings that are largely absent in the current literature.
