Our Talanoa series comes out of our Marsden Project (2019-2023), 'Vā Moana: space and relationality in Pacific thought and identity'.
This talanoa with Professor Anne Salmond is about her experiences of wā with Eruera Stirling, as well as her conversations with Patu Hohepa, Manuka Henare and other scholars, of non-linear, dynamic Māori conceptions of time and space as spiral or vortex. Such configurations allow thinking through whakapapa, and in connected past/present/future dimensions. Salmond has been working in the contact zones of Western and Māori worlds for many decades. Her most recent publication in this area is Tears of Rangi: experiments across worlds.
