Dr Lachy Paterson

Dr. Lachy Paterson (Te Tumu) has researched niupepa (Māori-language newspapers) of the colonial period, from which he has explored the social, cultural and religious discourses promulgated within these publications.  In 2006 he published Colonial Discourses, a monograph on the niupepa between 1855 and 1863, and has since produced a number of articles and book chapters on this topic.

He is currently engaged in collaborating with other Otago scholars in a history of the “book” and print culture in New Zealand, with 

his contribution focusing on a history of Māori-language publications from 1815 to the present.  Other major projects include research on the women workers of the Presbyterian Māori Mission, editing a collection on Indigenous Textual Cultures, and, with Angela Wanhalla, collecting archival material from which to construct an anthology of the “voices” of nineteenth-century Māori women.

See Lachy’s webpage for more information, and for selected downloads.
