HISTORY 227

Waitangi: Treaty to Tribunal


Description

A history of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the Treaty of Waitangi, and the Waitangi Tribunal. The course explores changing understandings of the Treaty and its role in New Zealand society since 1840. The establishment of the Waitangi Tribunal in 1975, the development of its work, and historical and contemporary claims brought before it will be studied.

Through readings and analysis students will learn about the Treaty of Waitangi in historical perspective, as well as the operation of the Waitangi Tribunal and the nature and limits of its work. Students will also develop an understanding of key themes, trends, processes and events discussed in the relevant literature while building on the historian’s skills of thinking historically and writing historical essays.

HISTORY 227 and 327 are taught concurrently. Stage II and III students will attend the same lectures, but will complete different assessments aimed at distinct learning outcomes. Similarly, schedules for Stage II tutorials and Stage III discussion groups will differ in nature and content.
