Oceanian Journeys and Sojourns focuses on how Pacific Island peoples—Oceanians—think about a range of journeys near and far: their meanings, motives, and implications. In addition to addressing human mobility in various island locales, these essays deal with the interconnections of culture, identity, and academic research among indigenous Pacific peoples that have emerged from the contributors’ personal observations and fieldwork encounters. Firmly grounded in the human experience, this edited work offers insights into the development of new knowledge in and of the Pacific. More than half the authors are themselves Oceanians and five of twelve essays are by island women.
Judith A. Bennett is a professor of history at the University of Otago. She is the coeditor of An Otago Storeman in Solomon Islands: The Diary of William Crossan, Copra Trader, 1885–86.
