Vol 4, No 2 (2007)

Guest editors Caroline Morris and Richard Vokes introduce four fascinating papers that explore migration experiences and cross cultural encounters both within and outside of New Zealand. Ruth Fitzgerald adds a further collection of four papers drawn from a diverse authorship and looking at aspects of New Zealand public life. From Marewa Glover and Benedicta Rousseau we feature the results of several hui on the topic of Maori interests and considerations in relation to the use of HART. Carl Mika also explores Maori opinion this time through self reflection and philosophical speculation on the nature of the sacredness of Maori language. Patrick McAllister looks outward to the public re-enactment of Waitaingi Day to speculate on how these public memorials help to recreate the 'treaty in action' for certain members of New Zealand society. Finally we welcome back Mike Lloyd to our continuing list of authors, this time accompanied by Bronwyn McGovern in a delightful study of Blanket Man - world famous in Wellington.

Vol 4, No 1 (2007)

In another diverse array of writing from New Zealand based social scientists, this issue explores aspects of Maori and Pakeha cultural identity. Topics include a report of the long ranging study on TB in New Zealand by Julie Park and Judith Littleton. We are also pleased to present an exploration of the contradictions of bureaucratised Maori healing in an article by Tony O'Connor as well as concerns over the unintended consequences of legistative protection and prescription of 'traditional' Maori fisheries. More topics include the development of a 'New Zealand' style of funeral services, the possibility of Pakeha use of the idea of Taonga, the lived experience of PKU, intimate relationships between young 'kiwis' and the expression of self identity for diasporic Japanese Americans.
