    ATPS3: Final episode about the WTNW project - the podcast, the politics, the oppression, the future.

    Taualuga series: final episode. Associate Professor Alice Te Punga Somerville  discusses the inspiration behind the podcast; 'being too political', the 'Modernist' vibe and historical oppression in and by NZ Literary Studies.
    This concludes a five month project of collaborative research which involved the acquisition of new digital, media skills, the tenacity to keep the momentum going and the conviction  to mediate and keep telling 'our stories' in our own ways. The podcast has been co-produced (actually almost entirely created) by PhD student and WTNW researcher Wanda Ieremia.

    12 Centering Niue knowledges, building research communities and searching for 'Niue Happiness'.

    Fakaalofa lahi atu! ‘Faliki e tau momoui he tau atuhau ke he Vagahau Niue’ which in English translates to, “Lay the foundations - give rise to Vagahau Niue for generations".
    The episode of our podcast series - which was first released for Niue Language Week 2020 - features our very own Niue scholars, Postdoc research fellow Dr Jess Pasisi and Corianton Poimatangi who are, in their work, centering Niue knowledges, building research communities and searching for 'Niue Happiness'.
    "We grew up in ways that are still very intimately tied to what it means to be a Niue person. Ultimately what we are doing is caring for our culture, that is the key to Niue people doing Niue research".

    11 - Shining the light on early 20th century Samoan literary cultures

    "I've reconnected with my family; I've never met my grandparents or great grandparents but I feel very connected to them now that I've read their writing.. I've read their feau, I've read ther momoliga alofa, soalaupule - aspiration for the next generation. I didn't have the privilege of hearing first hand from them and this is what archives (work) does. Although they were writing to a public, wider audience.. I read their work personally as an Indigenous researcher and a Samoan woman because I am connected to them, I have personal stakes (and responsibilities) in relation to their work."

    'Writing the New World' researcher and PhD student Wanda Ieremia-Allan explores her childhood memories of the delapidated London Missionary Society Malua Print house in Samoa as inspiration for her study of the cosmopolitan, Pan Pacific, early twentieth century Samoan literary cultures that stretched from as far as Torres Strait Islands to San Diego, US and New Zealand.
