Keynote Address:

Opening a new front: The call to teach the New Zealand Wars

We will open the conference with a keynote speech by Steve Watters, Senior Historian-Educator at Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture & Heritage. Given the emphasis placed on themes such as identity and nation building during the WW1 centenary, this paper will explore how we might better acknowledge and integrate events such as the New Zealand Wars into the national narrative.

Panel Discussion:

Glancing back and looking forward: 25 years of PHANZA

A panel discussion by three PHANZA members will discuss where we’ve been, what we’ve achieved and where we hope to go next.
