Memories are complex, selective, and evolve over time. Some memories are hegemonic and powerful and some are subordinate and marginalized. This conference seeks to address the complex politics of cultural memory in the Pacific from a variety of critical perspectives.
This three day event features international keynote speakers from Australia, Fiji and the USA as well as UC’s very own Director of the the Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies, Professor Steven Ratuva.
Hosted by the College of Arts and the Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies in conjunction with Memory Research in Aotearoa Network.
