Pacific Futures book launched

On April 12 &13, Centre member Professor Barbara Brookes attended a workshop at Harvard University entitled ‘Postcolonial Tensions: Science, History and Indigenous Knowledges’ where the volume Pacific Futures: Past and Present (University of Hawaii Press, 2018) was officially launched by Professor Philip Deloria. The book resulted from a symposium held at the Hocken Library in June 2014 jointly sponsored by CRoCC and Professor Warwick Anderson’s Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship program on ‘southern racial conceptions’. Professor Anderson, currently Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser Chair of Australian Studies (2018-19) at Harvard University, co-convened the  workshop with Professor Gabriela Soto Laveaga in the History of Science Department. The three co-editors, Warwick Anderson, Miranda Johnson and Barbara Brookes, were delighted by Professor Deloria’s words about past futures and a celebratory toast was made to the success of the book. 

The Centre congratulates Barbara and her co-editors on the launch of this fine volume of essays.
