Pacific History Association Conference in Cambridge

last modified Nov 12, 2018 11:44 AM

The 23rd Biennial Conference of the Pacific History Association will be held this December in Cambridge; it travels outside the Pacific for the first time, reflecting a significant moment in the field of Pacific studies. The local, Islander and postcolonial perspectives that the PHA has nurtured since the 1970s will be enabled to ‘speak back’ to the European academic context, enabling fresh a dialogue between northern hemisphere and Indigenous scholarship.

The programme builds upon distinguished expertise in the history and culture of Oceania across several faculties and departments (History; Archaeology; Geography; the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology) but which for the first time gives Cambridge’s strength in this region a high international profile. Details of the programme and the conference are here:
