Heather Devere, kelli te maiharoa, Maui Solomon & Maata Wharehoka
This article presents an account of collaborative, cross-cultural academic research related to indigenous peace traditions in Aotearoa New Zealand.1 It describes the decolonising research methodology developed by Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith, kaupapa Māori and introduces kaupapa Moriori (that is being developed by Moriori researchers). We then assess how these kaupapa approaches relate to the concept of friendship articulated by Professor Preston King. We find that the collaborative model that we have developed incorporates friendship principles...

Decolonising friendship

Astrid Hanna Maria Nordin
What might it mean to decolonise friendship? This article argues that friendship studies should take ‘decolonisation’ seriously. To decolonise scholarship means not only to critique the fact that ideas and historiographies deriving from ‘Western’ thinkers and experiences have informed the basic categories of social and political thought. It also means to challenge the mechanisms that have created the dominant imaginings of friendship. Through the example of writing on friendship in international relations, the article addresses...

Investigations of past earthquakes on the Titri Fault, coastal Otago, New Zealand

David J. A. Barrell, Nicola J. Litchfield, Russ J. Van Dissen, N. Wang, B. I. Taylor SIlva, S. Hornblow & Mark W. Stirling
The Titri Fault is a major southeast-dipping reverse fault in coastal Otago, southwest of Dunedin. The fault is up to 90 km long and has uplifted the coastal hills between Dunedin and Balclutha. Activity on the Titri Fault was previously poorly constrained, and the fault has not previously been included in the New Zealand National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM). Two suspected fault scarps were identified on alluvial fans along the Titri Fault and were investigated...

Teaching without a Text: Close Listening to Kamau Brathwaite's Digital Audio Archive

Jacob Edmond
New media technologies—from the tape recorder to the computer—enabled Kamau Brathwaite's revolutionary poetic approach; digital technologies likewise enable us to study and teach his groundbreaking work in new ways. This essay argues that teaching and studying Brathwaite should begin with the audible word not the written text and that digital audio archives and platforms can play a key role in enabling this approach. Digital audio archives such as PennSound and the Poetry Archive allow students...
