Refreshments will be served. Nau mai, haere mai – this is a public event, no RSVP needed.
This is a celebration of many years working together as Māori historians. It also marks the publication of the journal Te Pouhere Kōrero 10, along with the digital release of all ten volumes of the journal in the New Zealand History Collection.
The panel will discuss the central themes of Te Pouhere Kōrero 10. They bring a unique range of perspectives to bear on questions concerning the past, the study of history, and how it might be most interestingly, fulsomely, and ethically taught.
