Work with us

Can you help as we seek to generate fresh perspectives and contexts for research and analysis of national culture? Or perhaps we can help you?

Whether you are an academic or student, a national or regional cultural institution, an iwi or other Māori group, part of the public or private sector, an individual or representing an organisation, we welcome you contacting us to discuss ways in which we might work together.

Collaboration is a key element of Enriching national culture.

Continuing a long history of exploring the big questions

Professor Lydia Wevers and Dr Maria Bargh take a broad view of the Enriching national culture area of academic distinctiveness they co-chair, while always thinking about the role the Treaty of Waitangi plays in the expression of “what it means to live in this place and who we are who live in this place”.

Humour, including Flight of the Conchords, is one expression of Kiwi society, says Dr Wevers, Director of Victoria’s Stout Research Centre for New Zealand Studies.

With Wellington’s capital city resources and Victoria’s long history of scholars working on the big questions of national culture, the University is the prime location for this theme.

Dr Bargh, Head of Te Kawa a Māui/School of Māori Studies, looks forward to it creating some exciting interdisciplinary research explored from many different angles.
