HISTORY 104

Pacific History: An Introduction


Description

This course surveys the history of the Pacific from the indigenous settlement of the Pacific to the post-WWII world. It highlights the stories of indigenous Pacific peoples and their experiences of early encounters with Europeans, the arrival of the missionaries, colonisation of the Pacific, and the significant and enduring impact of the Pacific War.

It examines critical periods in Pacific history through examining cross-cultural interactions and the agency of Pacific people through major periods of change. This course also seeks to analyse the way Pacific history has been recorded through predominantly western methods of historical recording and place value on the ways history has been recorded and told by the indigenous people of the Pacific.
