    The New Zealand Religious History Newsletter began under the editorship of Colin Brown in 1987 in order to keep people in touch with publications, research, news, conferences and other information relevant to the study of New Zealand Religious History. The Newsletter has appeared annually since 1987 (with a gap 1990-1991). In 1996 Allan Davidson and Janet Crawford took over its editorship, and Allan Davidson was the editor 2006 to 2009, and Dr Chris van der Krogt from 2009. Oversight of the Newsletter was taken by The Religious History Association of Aotearoa New Zealand which was formed in 2004. Further information about the Association and subscription details for the Newsletter are contained on the last page of the latest number of the Newsletter. A reminder asking for news is sent out in June. Suggestions about how the Newsletter can be improved are welcome. An annual subscription includes membership of the Religious History Association of Aotearoa New Zealand (RHAANZ).

  • Creative Printmaking in New Zealand, 1930-2007: An Annotated Bibliography

    Ward, Fiona (2012)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    This Annotated Bibliography includes 105 references that record all available published, unpublished and digital material about the history of creative printmaking in New Zealand from 1930 to 2007. As New Zealand academics and printmakers have noted, while other visual media such as painting and photography have always been included in the discourse of art history in New Zealand, for various reasons printmaking has been gradually excluded and marginalised. There is a need to foster an academic and critical interest in printmaking to provide a framework to enable further research and scholarship. This Annotated Bibliography will support future academic and critical explorations of the topic.

  • Themes and processes in New Zealand theology

    Darragh, Neil (2007)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    In its overview of contemporary trends in theology contextual to Aotearoa New Zealand, this paper draws upon the two companion bibliographies ???Theology in Aotearoa New Zealand: An Annotated Bibliography under Subject Headings???(http://hdl.handle.net/2292/447) and ???Theology in Aotearoa New Zealand: Endnote library??? http://hdl.handle.net/2292/2265. These bibliographies cover essentially the same material but are presented in different formats. They are both accessible through http://www.researchspace.auckland.ac.nz. They provide the evidence for the discernment of trends in both content and process that is proposed in this paper. This paper seeks to summarise the state of theological reflection in Aotearoa New Zealand in the early stages of the 21st century. Key features of local theology are the movement from implicit to explicit theology and the invitation to inter-local exchange. Within this wider theoretical understanding of local theology the paper offers an overview of the main themes or content of contemporary New Zealand theology taking both an ???emic??? (insider) and an ???etic??? (using commonly known traditional categories) approach. It then undertakes a similar overview of the processes or methods used in New Zealand theology.

  • Review of the book Social Work Theories and Methods, edited by Mel Gray and Stephen Webb

    Beddoe, L (2010)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    Social Work Theories and Methods provides an outline of the contributions made by key theorists, theories, and perspectives that influence social work. A central premise of the text is that social work is an intellectual activity that attempts ??????to make sense of human situations?????? (p. 3) and that the thinking that forms the content of the book underpins this effort. A key component of the resources we have at our disposal is the body of social work knowledge that draws on and contributes to social theory. The theorists and their contributions, from competing social science and philosophical traditions, all provide ideas that have application to our thinking about social problems, social work practice, social work education, and policy and service development. While they span many decades in their development, the many perspectives have in common rich conceptual frameworks for addressing current challenges in our profession.

  • Review of the book Critical Reflection in Health and Social Care, by Sue White, Jan Fook and Fiona Gardner (Eds), and Practising Critical Reflection: A Resource Handbook, by Jan Fook and Fiona Gardner

    Beddoe, L (2009)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    Critical Reflection in Health and Social Care is an edited collection of contributions from authors who write from a range of disciplinary and professional backgrounds. The editors, well published in the field of critical reflection and practice in the health and human services professions, state in the preface that their purpose in producing the book is to bring together a collection of contributions that assist in ??????interrogating practice in such a way that the hidden, tacit or taken-for granted aspects may be properly understood and debated?????? (p. xii). This critical inquiry into reflection as a practice is important; the terms reflection, reflexive and reflective practice, and critical reflection are all easily used interchangeably or uncritically in our profession. Since Ixer???s challenge in 1999 to the unquestioning use of reflection and argument that the notion of reflection lacked a coherent unifying theory, many researchers have tackled the problems (e.g., Baldwin, 2004; Redmond, 2004). This new collection provides a useful vehicle for presenting both a review of the practice of critical reflection and some new insights through the presentation of new ideas and interpretations.

    The pre-existing accident compensation system has enabled New Zealand to construct a unique, just, sensible and balanced system for prevention, accountability and compensation in cases of adverse events in the health system. In New Zealand we have two separate pathways designed to redress patients??? interests. The compensation role has been met by a state-funded compensation scheme since 1974....

  • Exercise Training in Pregnancy Reduces Offspring Size Without Changes in Maternal Insulin Sensitivity EDITORIAL COMMENT

    Elevated neonatal birth size is associated with risk for the development of overweight and obesity in childhood. A large body of evidence has demonstrated the importance of the in utero environment in determining growth in postnatal life. Numerous studies have suggested that reduction in maternal insulin sensitivity in the maternal environment contributes significantly to fetal growth. There is an inverse relationship between birth size and both very low and very high maternal insulin sensitivity. Accordingly, marked reduction in maternal insulin sensitivity in late stages of pregnancy has been linked to the preservation of fetal nutrient availability for growth, and thereby increased offspring birth size. It has been suggested that regular exercise may reduce offspring size by regulating the nutrient supply to the fetus through increases in maternal insulin sensitivity. Few data exist on the metabolic consequences of maternal exercising during pregnancy for mother and offspring. This community-based, randomized, controlled trial investigated the effects of aerobic exercise training during the second half of pregnancy on maternal insulin sensitivity and neonatal outcomes. The participants were 84 healthy nulliparous singleton women at a mean age of 30 years, mean body mass index (BMI) of 25.5, and at less than 20 weeks' gestation. Of the 84 randomized subjects, 47 in the exercise group and 37 in the control completed both baseline and late gestation assessments. Aerobic exercise intervention was a home-based stationary cycling program performed by study subjects from 20 weeks of gestation till the delivery. The primary study outcome measures were offspring birth weight and maternal insulin sensitivity. Measures of neonatal auxology determined at birth included birth weight and BMI and were reported as standard deviation scores (SDS). Venous cord blood samples were collected at delivery to assess fetal concentrations of growth-related peptides (IGF-1 and IGF-2). The study was performed according to intention-to-treat analysis. After adjustment for gender and gestational age at delivery, exercisers had lower birth weight (SDS, control: 0.23 ?? 0.8 vs. exercise: ???0.19 ?? 0.9; P = 0.03) and BMI at birth (SDS, control: 0.40 ?? 0.9 vs. exercise: ???0.01 ?? 0.09; P = 0.04). The reduction in maternal insulin sensitivity occurring in late gestation was not correlated with either exercise or offspring size. Cord serum concentrations of serum IGF-1 (P = 0.03) and IGF-2 (P = 0.04) were lower in offspring of exercisers compared with control offspring. These data suggest that maternal exercise has an effect on decreased endocrine stimulation of fetal growth. The reduction in birth weight after exercise training is not associated with changes in maternal insulin sensitivity.

  • This is not a Renaissance, Winter Lecture

    Harris, Aroha (2009-08-12)

    Unclassified
    The University of Auckland Library

    In the period 1945-1967 M??ori communities, organisations and individuals did what they could to protect, maintain and revitalise M??ori society and culture. Their efforts gave rise to informal M??ori enclaves in predominantly P??keh?? neighbourhoods, and sowed the seeds for longer-lasting innovations - usually credited to a later so-called M??ori renaissance - such as M??ori play centres, churches and urban marae. These post-war M??ori were creative negotiators. Their relations with the state were simultaneously more conflicted, more subtle, and more co-operative than has previously been acknowledged.
