Aims and objectives
We aim to enable the production of new historical understandings of colonialism, colonial cultures, and empire in New Zealand, the Pacific and beyond.
We seek to do this by facilitating public discussion about colonialism and its legacies through conferences, symposia, workshops and hosting visiting scholars, as well as published research.
These are designed to push scholarly work in exciting and new methodological and analytical directions while also enriching public understanding and providing new knowledge to policy makers, community leaders and the cultural sector.
The Centre is also committed to building productive ongoing relationships with relevant experts and institutions in order to ensure the utility and significance of its research.
