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.
