Griffith Review 43: Pacific Highways


New Zealand has quietly become a complex Pacific nation with a polyphony of voices. With multiculturalism come questions of identity: Who decides who is a 'New Zealander'? How is place defined for those who migrate among the islands of the Pacific, Southern and Tasman oceans? How has an increasingly diverse population contributed to New Zealand's wealth of artistic and literary talent?

Join acclaimed author Lloyd Jones, co-editor of Griffith REVIEW 43: Pacific Highways, as he presents on 'what to write about', and engages in a broader discussion on the exchange of people and culture in New Zealand and how the authority of the writer's voice imagines or defines a place. Lloyd is introduced by Griffith REVIEW founding editor Julianne Schultz.

Pacific Highways explores the points of resistance and overlap and challenges perceptions of New Zealand from both sides of the Tasman.

This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts.
