Migration Museum of Dunedin

Welcome

 

Welcome to the Online Migration Museum of Dunedin. This part of the site was devised and created by Professor Angela McCarthy. It features research conducted by her Honours History classes (HIST431 and 401) of 2017, 2016 and 2015 who studied migration, ‘race’, and ethnicity in New Zealand.

In 2017 and 2016, as part of their coursework, the class researched and wrote about gravestones in the Southern Cemetery at Dunedin. In 2015, as part of their coursework, the class researched and wrote about migrant objects brought to Dunedin by various ethnic/migrant groups. Both classes subjected the entries to extensive collective review and amendment before being published online.
