New issue available: General Issue Vol 12 No 2, 2015

SITES 12 (2), published November 2015, opens with the prize-winning essay by Hannah Gibson in the first 'SITES Graduate Student Essay Competition'. Hannah canvasses the relative merits of Cyborg Theory and Actor Network Theory in relation to disabled bodies and technology, especially in contexts of inequality. Inequality and place are two key themes running through this General Issue. In relation to bicultural and Māori issues, readers are offered articles on a practical national strategy for addressing racism; how Māori were incorporated ambiguously into National Film Unit documentaries, and ethnographic reflections on ‘dwelling’ in two contemporary rural marae. The issue concludes with two articles on very different aspects of place in New Zealand: one examining challenges around Muslim’s women’s physical activities and identities; the other the experiences of displaced Christchurch aged care residents, post the 2011 earthquakes. A robust set of book reviews rounds out the issue.
