1. Powell, Emma. "“I’m sorry but I don’t know / I’m not that kind of Māori”: Māori Articulations in the New Zealand Beyond Aotearoa" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NAISA, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand, <Not Available>. 2020-02-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1484315_index.html>

Abstract: Māori is a shared demonym used by peoples of the Cook Islands and the tangata whenua of Aotearoa, New Zealand to describe their indigeneity. In the context of the New Zealand realm, the denomym emphasises the indigeneity of Aoteaora, Māori because they have continued to host the settler government who in turn annexed the Cook Islands in the early 20th century.

In this paper, I consider the use, meaning and power of the demonym as it moves through three contexts: Aotearoa, the Cook Islands and the New Zealand realm. I focus on Cook Islands Māori articulations of the demonym and argue that because of complex, overlapping colonial boundaries, Cook Islands Māori people are in a constant state of rearticulating their Māoriness as they cross those colonial geographies. This is not to say that Cook Islands people remove their Māoriness once settled or sojourning through Aotearoa. Rather, I argue that the practice of ‘akapapa’anga (genealogical layering) allows different articulations of the Māori demonym for both peoples to function in a contrapuntal harmony that moves past the ignorances of colonial ruptures and boundaries in our modern contexts.

To demonstrate this, I discuss transcript excerpts from a conference held in 1993 called Atuikorero where cultural experts from Aotearoa and the Cook Islands came together to discuss respective oral traditions and ancestral ties. Their discussions are a strong example of Māori articulations that are sensitive to the context of the realm but prioritise the placed-ness, through ‘akapapa’anga, of all Māori within the great Ocean.

Abstract: En 1966 se produjo en un bar de Praga el encuentro fortuito de dos leyendas vivas de la historia del comunismo salvadoreño, Miguel Mármol y Roque Dalton. El primero, de profesión zapatero, era, más que un hombre, un símbolo en plena forma que combinaba el ímpetu espontáneo del guerrillero incansable con la labor del militante de partido sin fisuras. Mármol no sólo había sido uno de los fundadores del Partido Comunista de El Salvador en 1930, también era un superviviente de la Matanza de 1932, que inauguró uno de los regímenes militares más largos y penosos de Latinoamérica. Dalton interpretó esta reunión azarosa como una interpelación imperativa a su papel de escritor revolucionario, y le propuso a Mármol la plasmación de sus vivencias en un testimonio que recogiera el espíritu revolucionario primigenio y sirviera de inspiración para futuras luchas. En este trabajo me propongo analizar la función del dolor en la transmisión ideológica que se produce en la lectura a través de la empatía por los padecimientos sufridos por el narrador. Mi hipótesis es que Miguel Mármol sigue una tipología discursiva cercana al modelo evangelizador cristiano. Los mártires (del griego antiguo mártys, testigo) son aquellos modelos de militancia cuya experiencia extrema con el dolor está más allá de los límites humanos. Los hagiógrafos relacionan, de una manera causal, la fe verdadera con la fortaleza indestructible del cuerpo. Miguel Mármol, que sobrevivió a su propio fusilamiento, es, gracias a su biografía, un mártir que se postula a santo.

Abstract: Theorizing the relationship between pornography and heterosexual men's investment in and enactment of hegemonic masculine practice—particularly overt sexism, the objectification of women, and violence against women—is longstanding and fraught territory in feminist research and activism. Drawing on interactional and post-structural theories of gender, I attempt to move beyond binary debates about whether or not pornography impacts heterosexual men's gender ideology or sexual practice to argue that pornography has a much more complex relationship to individual men's accomplishment of gender. Drawing on 15 in-depth life history interviews asking subjects to narrate their experiences of sexual learning, this article attempts to link debates about pornography to theories of gender, particularly theories of multiple masculinities. I argue not that pornography use has a direct causal relationship to gender outcomes, but that pornography use can become implicated in gender outcomes where pornography use and preferences are believed by individual men to signify inadequate or failed masculinity. I argue that where subjects did not feel their pornography use had any bearing on adequate or inadequate gender accomplishment, they experienced a greater security in departing from normative masculine forms over the life course, resulting in more egalitarian and pro-feminist gender ideology and sex practice. Where pornography use contributed to anxieties about inadequate or failed masculinity, subjects became more invested in the performance of normative masculinity and exhibited greater reluctance to depart from normative masculine forms over the life course. Implications for the maintenance of unequal gender relations are discussed.

4. Manuirirangi, George (Hōri). "Revitalising Traditional Nōnoke Māori (Māori Wrestling) to Reaffirm Modern Māori Identity" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NAISA, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand, <Not Available>. 2020-02-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1486598_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: To truly appreciate and understand the practice of traditional nōnoke, one must understand Te Reo Māori (The Māori Language), as the language itself is the medium that enhances and reflects our cultural perspectives and knowledge.
Māori have a strong presence within the competitive wrestling community in Aotearoa, with more and more practitioners becoming aware of our own indigenous Māori style of wrestling. Once widely practiced by both men and women alike, nōnoke served a number of specific functions in early Māori society. Indigenous practitioners would train and engage in nōnoke as a form of self-defence or for general play. Nōnoke matches were common during times of celebration, conflict resolution, or on special occasions, competitive nōnoke bouts would take place as an integral part of courting rituals.
This presentation will draw on the views and experiences provided by a number of Māori wrestlers and their families, sharing personal insights about maintaining one’s Māori identity in a modern wrestling community.
