  • PhD Research (2009 to 2014)
    Ambivalent Empires: Historising the Trobriand Islands, 1830-1945 — Australian National University
    My doctoral research involves historicising the Trobriand Islands of Papua New Guinea through a combination of archival historiography and ethnographic fieldwork. My thesis is focused on the complex and ambivalent interplay between Trobriand Islanders and dimdim - European missionaries, government officers, anthropologists, traders, etc. - from their first encounters in the early 1800s through World War II; and how Trobrianders today relate to the past in everyday life.
    Keywords: Trobriand Islands, Papua New Guinea, Massim studies, Pacific History, Historicity, Oral history.
