Author Biography

Ian Fookes, University of Auckland

As a lecturer at Waipapa Temata Rau / University of Auckland, my primary purpose is to help students improve their written, spoken, and visual communication in academic and business contexts. This role is informed by my teaching and learning experiences in Tahiti, France, Japan, and New Zealand. I serve a range of communities within academia and am involved in editing Ekistics and the New Habitat, an international peer-reviewed journal presenting research into the problems and solutions of human settlements. Through my research portfolio I seek to understand the ways that intercultural experience influences the representation of other cultures, and how the experience of writing and art making leads to self-knowledge and identity construction. This research informs my contribution to Asian Studies and Comparative Literature, as a course coordinator, guest lecturer, and postgraduate supervisor.
