Dr Hirini Kaa
Ko Rawiri Te Tangata: Maori Anglicans and the power of The Word
Dr Hirini Kaa, of Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu and Rongowhakaata, is an historian and Anglican minister. In Ko Rawiri Te Tangata: Māori Anglicans and the power of The Word, Dr Kaa will consider how iwi engaged with Christian sacred texts through their own mātauranga, or worldview, and understood and used them through lenses such as whakapapa, whanaungatanga and tikanga. His talk will draw on his recently published book, Te Hāhi Mihinare | The Māori Anglican Church, which was a finalist in the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards 2021 and joint winner of the 2021 Ernest Scott Prize awarded by the University of Melbourne for the best history in Australia or New Zealand.

What’s the Power of Feminist Bibliography?
How can feminist theories and praxis help us understand bibliographic work and the power of bookish communities? In this talk, book historian and digital media scholar Dr Sarah Werner will consider what it means to be a feminist bibliographer, offering a sketch of both what feminist bibliography might be and why it matters.
Washington DC-based Dr Werner is the author of Studying Early Printed Books 1450-1800: A Practical Guide; her current work explores the possibilities for a feminist praxis of bibliography.
