Contributors to this Issue

Jenifer Curnow completed an M.A. in Maori Studies at the University of Auckland in 1983. Her article, Wiremu Maihi Te Rangikaheke: His Life and Work, appeared in JPS 94 (1985). She translates Maori manuscripts, has contributed biographies of 19th century Maori notables to the forthcoming Dictionary of New Zealand Biography, and works part-time in the Archive of Maori and Pacific Music at the University of Auckland.

Joan Metge began her study of anthropology in the newly established Department of Anthropology at the University of Auckland, after graduating M.A. in Geography. After studying at the London School of Economics, she was awarded her doctorate for a thesis based on field work among Maori living in Auckland and in the community of Kotare in the far north. She held university posts at the University of Auckland (1951, 1961-4) and Victoria University of Wellington (1965-88), continuing to do field work in these and other parts of New Zealand during vacation and research leave, from 1981 to 1983 as Fifth Captain James Cook Fellow. She took early retirement from Victoria at the beginning of 1988 and is now fully employed in research, writing and occasional teaching. She was a member of the Science and Technology Committee from 1987 to 1989. In 1987 she was made Dame Commander of the British Empire for “services to Anthropology”.

Edward LiPuma, who received a doctorate in Anthropology in 1984 from the University of Chicago, currently teaches at the University of Miami. He is the author of a recent book (The Gift of Kinship, 1988) on Maring social organisation. His recent writings have focused on the relationships between language and social objectification, and on the cultural construction of subjectivity.

Call for Conference Papers: The Auckland Experience

The Centre for the Study of Auckland History and Society at the University of Auckland is holding a conference entitled “The Auckland Experience: Peoples, Places and Time”, 17-19 August, 1990. The conference will examine the way different groups of people have experienced life in the Auckland region. Keynote speakers will be Associate-Professor Anne Salmond, of Auckland University, and Professor Graeme Davidson, of Monash University. They will explore the themes of cultural relations, the experience of colonial development and the role of cities within that development. During the conference a small number of invited speakers will address - 6 major themes in Auckland's history. Papers of 30-45 minutes' duration in keeping with the conference theme are now invited. Please send proposals by March 30, 1990, to Associate-Professor Raewyn Dalziel, Department of History, University of Auckland, Private Bag, Auckland 1, New Zealand.
