Associate Professor Annabel Cooper (Gender Studies) researches the cultural, historical and spatial history of gender in New Zealand and the interrelations between gender, identity and nation or place. Annabel is currently working on a study entitled ‘The Pakeha Wars: A Genealogy of Memory and Identity 1900-2008’, which analyses film, television, and fiction as well as the formal history of what are usually called the New Zealand Wars. The project specifically addresses the ways in which these colonial wars challenge the comfort of a Pakeha identity shaped by ideals of decency and fairness, and asks how Pakeha have sought to come to terms with this legacy.
