MEMC seminar Polynesia 900-1600

Medieval and Early Modern Centre (MEMC) Lunchtime Seminar + Global Middle Ages Group

Friday, 5 November, 12:00-1:30pm with Madi Williams, Aotahi lecturer.

The Middle Ages are very much a European phenomenon.  Despite this, there is much to be gained by expanding our line of sight to include other areas such as the Pacific.

In her recent work, Polynesia, 900-1600, Madi explores the European Middle Ages in the South Polynesian context.

In this talk, Madi will outline some of the methodological challenges and opportunities of undertaking this type of research, in particular, the benefits and limitation of the source material will be discussed.
