The study of the history of public administration as a distinct discipline seems to be out of favour with New Zealand historians. With an emphasis on the period of provincial government rule between 1853 and 1876, this seminar considers the historiography of public administration in New Zealand with a focus on the 19th century up to the dissolution of the provinces, and suggests that there is a place for the history of settler bureaucracy.
