  • Outdoor education in Aotearoa New Zealand: A new vision for the twenty first century

    Irwin, D.; Straker, J.; Hill, A. (2011)

    Book
    Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, Te Wānanga Ōtautahi

    Outdoor education in a variety of guises has a rich history in Aotearoa New Zealand, dating back more than 100 years. Learning experiences in the outdoors have a strong and oft en much-loved place in our collective education memories, from environmental field trips in the mountain valleys of Aoraki/Mount Cook to school camps at Port Waikato; from primary school stream study and restoration projects to multiday alpine journeys for tertiary students. However, as we move into the second decade of the twenty-fi rst century, the world we live in is vastly diff erent from the one in which many of us developed those memories. What does that mean for education, and more specifi cally, what does that mean for educational experiences that take place in outdoor environments? This book attends to these questions from a forward looking position. It shares a vision of outdoor education which moves beyond the proud histories of twentieth century school camps, fi eld studies and outdoor pursuits to one which addresses the exigent and contemporary issues confronting educators and students alike. The twenty-first century seems to be characterised by great uncertainty and rapid change. Issues such as climate change, growing inequality between the haves and have-nots, and rising levels of consumption and waste are increasingly entering the fray of our everyday lived realities. So too are bigger (or indeed smaller), better, and faster technologies. Cultural norms are constantly being challenged, contested, and reshaped. How then does outdoor education wrestle with and speak to these and other issues?

  • Stalking Nabokov: Selected Essays

    Boyd, Brian (2011)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Selects 26 of over 100 essays, 1990-2010, on Nabokov’s life, thought, art, science, relations to other writers and traditions, and on individual works. “Not only is anything that Boyd writes about Nabokov significant, but his study of Nabokov is remarkably dynamic. . . . a fascinating story of continual intellectual rediscovery”—Susan Elizabeth Sweeney, Holy Cross. “A real treasure. . . . remarkable . . . —all readers and scholars of Vladimir Nabokov will need this.”—Michael Wood, Princeton. First reviews: “Boyd's graceful style and passionate advocacy achieves the goal of the best literary criticism: it compels us to pick up Nabokov and read, or read again, the work of a master” (Publishers Weekly); “advances a consistent and intriguing reading of Nabokov’s work. . . . a powerful corrective to a prevailing view of Nabokov” (Boston Globe); “ambitious . . . fervent . . . epiphanic” (Martin Amis, TLS); “absolutely fascinating . . . uniquely compelling. . . . This is Boyd at his best” (San Francisco Chronicle).

  • Maori and Social Issues

    McIntosh, Tracey; Mulholland, M (2011)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    This volume canvases a range of social issues that are significant for a better undestanding of the experiences and social environment of Maori and highlight the need to ensure research-based solutions to the challenges presently faced. While a number of the chapters play the important role of contextualising Maori experience, the majority of the contributions engage with social problems. However, this is not a call to a return of deficit research. Rather it is an opportunity to provide power-centred, Maori-centred perspectives and solutions.

  • Tuhituhi, William Hodges, Cook's Painter in the South Pacific

    Simmons, Laurence (2011)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    This study of the art of William Hodges opens fresh theoretical perspectives on the representational problems raised by these early paintings produced in the South Pacific. Following Pacific Island historians of the 1960s, it argues that it is possible to read the texts and visual material produced from early South Seas encounters against the grain, as moments of cross-cultural exchange that challenge postcolonial complacencies. Tuhituhi is presented in sections that follow the geographical and chronological progression of Cook’s voyage on the Resolution, for which William Hodges was hired as official artist, Cook’s ‘landskip painter’. Painters like Hodges found themselves staring again and again in disbelief at landscapes and seascapes that stretched 18th-century conventions of painting, such as the ‘picturesque’, the ‘sublime’ and the ‘beautiful’. Each chapter of Tuhituhi focuses on the close reading of a significant painting of a South Pacific location by Hodges. The last chapter considers the important influence of Hodges’ work on a series of paintings by the major twentieth-century New Zealand painter Colin McCahon.
