The purpose of this course is to give students a foundational knowledge base on the history of migration and peopling of the Pacific with a strong focus on Aotearoa and the political connections between Maori and the British Crown. With the analysis of various forms of media and historical texts, TRNS002 explores contemporary truths of Aotearoa and examines how influence and perception have moulded New Zealand culture, politics, and society.
