     CALL FOR PAPERS

    New Zealand Oral History Conference

     Stout Research Centre for New Zealand Studies and the

    Ko wai mātou?        Who are we?

     A common thread runs through the contemporary work of many philosophers, economists, geneticists, historians and novelists world-wide. Who are we? What unites us? What separates us?  As we in Aotearoa New Zealand grapple with the consequences of colonisation 250 years on, questions of personal and collective identity resonate on multiple levels. Do we share any form of collective identity?

    We invite papers that explore “who are we?” in different and interesting ways.

    • There are multiple social and cultural dimensions to identity – iwi/hapu, family, ethnicity, occupation, class, sexuality, generation, and gender among them.
    • How do we navigate the personal and collective multiplicity of identities that are part and parcel of everyday life?
    • In what ways are these identities perceived to overlap?
    • How do we negotiate conflicting identities?
    • Past or present – which matters more when considering who we are?
    • Are our life narratives our self-identities?

    Through the medium of interviews and life narratives oral historians are able to record a rich diversity of perspectives and make a contribution to understanding the question “Ko wai mātou?” or “Who are we?”.

     Keynote speakers include:

    (Waskam) Emelda Davis, founding member and chairwoman of Australian South Sea Islanders (Port Jackson) in Sydney, speaking on ‘Children of the Sugar Slaves’.

     and

     Na Li, Research Fellow and Professor in the Department of History, Zhejiang University, China, speaking on “Oral History, Public Memory, and Political Identity: A Transnational Dialogue”. To be confirmed.
