Pacific Cultures research: What we’re working on
Find out about some of our current Pacific Cultures research projects.
Mapping the Sāmoa Collection
This project aims to enhance museum catalogue records and develop digital maps to contextualise taonga; enhancing their visibility and improving associated biographies, which then allows communities to utilise and share these resources, as well as support museum collections and knowledge.
Research Project: Sāmoan Multiplicities: Experiences of Samoanness
The project hypothesizes that experiences of Samoanness are spatially embedded - in landscapes, journeys, and multiple localities. They are also simultaneously, yet temporally, negotiated - through memories, narratives, and genealogies.
