Welcome to The New Outrigger!

This is a new website initiative from ANU Pacific Studies PhD students Bianca Hennessy (who I met in 2017 when she visited Va’aomanÅ« Pasifika at Victoria University of Wellington as part of her doctoral research exploring Pacific Studies programmes around the region) and Mitiana Arbon. “The New Outrigger” is a space for “rigorous and academically informed dialogue, debate and conversation that brings together Pacific Islander and non-Islander scholars, activists, and artists. We want to explore the expansive transdisciplinary, Indigenous and Island(er)-centred, creative mode of studies that the Pacific inspires.” Well worth a look!
