This course examines a variety of issues in New Zealand history, chosen by each year's class. These issues are either: (1) ones that have fuelled debate, or (2) topics that are under-explored or undeveloped but could open up research fields in the future.

This course offers a thorough grounding in advanced issues in New Zealand history. It examines the major trends and debates in the field. Old work is recovered and new research is showcased. There is the opportunity to specialise in self-chosen areas of particular interest. Some examples are diplomacy and international relations, war and society, race and ethnicity, heritage, environmental, cultural and women’s history. There is attention to developing research and writing skills, including working with primary documents at local repositories. This course is essential preparation for thesis work in New Zealand history and will be an advantage in all workplaces where a knowledge of national history is relevant. This course can be taken as part of the Master of International Relations and Diplomacy MIRAD (Schedule B).


Subject to approval of the Head of Department.
