This conference will be devoted to the discussion of recent developments affecting the production and reception of New Zealand and Pacific literary, visual and performance arts in a global context. It will focus on a range of issues related to the creation, reception, study, translation and marketing of these forms of expression. Whereas on the one hand New Zealand and Pacific arts are being created and circulated as deriving from culturally specific locations, they have also been received, translated, taught and marketed as part of the more broadly defined category of ‘world’ culture.
