News and opinion
Narratives — both factual and fictional — help us to explain events, actions and motivations with a beginning, middle and end. We study the stories of others and create our own.
Our celebrated filmmakers, novelists and poets — such as New Zealand's Poet Laureate, and most lauded documentarian — play with language and raise big issues.
We study New Zealand, Pacific, Caribbean, Japanese, Spanish, French, Italian, Irish, Latin, Latin American, American and English literature. Also: Nabokov.
Our interests range from language education to Māori and Pacific educational success to patriotic education, public pedagogy and post-WWII educational theatre.
We research popular music, film, video games and comic books — and pop culture subjects like prisons, the Bible and kamikaze pilots — on nearly every continent.
Is beauty in the eye of the beholder? We research how and why different cultures and ideologies prefer different styles of art, design, body adornment and life.
Associate Professor Aroha Harris (Te Rarawa and Ngāpuhi) uncovers the complexity of Māori histories.
Poet-scholar Associate Professor Selina Tusitala Marsh explains how making creative work is part of her Indigenous scholarship, as well as her poetry.
Professor Gary Barkhuizen collects and studies stories, to learn about why and how we teach and learn languages.
Founded by award-winning novelist and academic Dr Paula Morris, the ANZL includes 15 Fellows and around 100 invited members.
Our historians aim to put the history of Tāmaki Makaurau at the heart of an energetic conversation about our city.
We combine macro and micro knowledges — getting down to the nitty-gritty and zooming out for the larger picture — to develop understandings of life.
Institutions can empower the vulnerable and/or discriminate and attack. We study collective actions and categories: their causes, effects and resistance.
People make, shape and break physical and political locations — and vice versa. We study kaitiakitanga, disaster recovery, health and migration — old and new.
