Our Rivers: complex histories, hopeful futures

The W.H.Oliver Humanities Research Academy series of Whanganui Seminars 2018 is a partnership between the Alexander Heritage and Research Library, the Whanganui Regional Museum and Massey University’s W.H. Oliver Humanities Research Academy. It aims to raise awareness of the presence of history in the local community as well as celebrating students embarking on careers in the rich field of New Zealand historical research.

Home and away is the theme for the 2018 seminar series.
