Conference 2019 – Kanohi-ki-te-Kanohi: Histories for our Time

Kia hiwa rā! Kia hiwa rā!

The New Zealand Historical Association invites registrations for our biennial conference, to be held at Victoria University of Wellington Te Whare Wananga o Te Ūpoko o Te Ika a Māui, from the 27th to the 30th of November, 2019.

Meetings, encounters, exchanges, kisses, words, conversations, attractions, glares, confrontations, curiosities: how have people come face to face? What histories are made in these moments? What happens when historians face their subjects?

Dr Wayne Ngata stated: ‘Kanohi ki te kanohi’ or ‘face-to-face’ communication is a facet of human behaviour. It allows one to not only see who or what one is communicating with, but also to hear, feel, and smell the relationship.
