Written from a Antipodean perspective, twelve lively and analytical essays explore: Concepts in contemporary humanities theory and the transitions from print-based to digital mediums, the influence of the renaissance on technological culture, anthropological issues in the Pacific, and New Zealand and post-colonial readings of literary, religious and historical tradition and dissent. Coalescing around central themes, the book examines the contemporary relevance of the humanities and argues for the advantages of inter-disciplinary approaches in the increasingly specialised world of today. The book is written for teachers and students of the humanities as well as a general academic audience.
