Conference: Uncovering Pacific Encounters

Uncovering Pacific Encounters
A workshop on the interpretation, translation & ‘repatriation’ of historical sources
11-12 July 2011
Australian National University (College of Asia and Pacific) &
National Museum of Australia (Centre for Historical Research)
Presenters include:
Bronwen Douglas • Elena Govor • Michelle Hetherington • Chantal Kwast-Greff • Stuart Bedford • Ewan Maidment • Jenny Newell • Michael Pickering • Dame Prof. Anne Salmond • Vanessa Smith • Serge Tcherkezoff • Paul Turnbull • Senator Richard Ariihau Tuheiava
Many of us working in anthropology, archaeology, history and linguistics have been involved identifying, retrieving, and translating texts and other sources, and creating on-line access to the data. All this provides some basis for studying and debating fundamental questions surrounding the reconstruction of early encounters between Oceanic/Pacific Peoples and Europeans, finding indigenous voices, and issues surrounding ‘repatriating’ knowledge to indigenous communities.

Presenting work to date and discussing methodological questions, this workshop provides an opportunity to pool knowledge across institutions and share ideas for on-going programs. One of the expected results of the workshop will be the formulation of research projects to specific funding bodies, and the development of the Oceanic/Pacific Encounters research project.
