Walo moiha! (You said it!)

My research seeks to understand the kinds of theories people create to explain their own societies and why they change. My early research focused on the meaning of history in Auhelawa, an indigenous society in Papua New Guinea (PNG). My current projects deal with the development of news journalism in colonial and postcolonial PNG, and how information networks connect indigenous peoples, missionaries, states and scientists in Oceania.
