What does it mean to be an Aucklander?

Cultural Diversity and Citizenship in the 21st Century


Auckland's' demographic and cultural mix has changed dramatically in recent decades.  The city is now one of the most immigrant-dependent in the world with 56 per cent of residents either immigrants, or the children of immigrants.  This lecture explores these changes and the implications for everything, from our food habits and sports to identity and language, and asks: do we need to rethink what it means to be an Aucklander or New Zealander in the 21st Century?
