Synopsis: Much has been written about Papua New Guinea over the last century and too often in ways that legitimated or served colonial interests through highly pejorative and racist descriptions of Papua New Guineans. Paying special attention to early travel literature, works of fiction, and colonial reports, laws, and legislation, Regis Tove Stella reveals the complex and persistant network of discursive strategies deployed to subjugate the land and its people.
About the Author: Regis Tove Stella is from the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea, and has a Ph.D. from the University of New South Wales, Australia. He is director of the Melanesian Institute of Arts and Communications and a faculty member in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Papua New Guinea.
