CENTRE FOR PACIFIC STUDIES

 

 

The Centre for Pacific Studies is unique in the UK and is internationally recognised for its research, teaching, impact and public engagement portfolios. Since 2008, CPS has played a leading role in research throughout the wider Oceania region, and has created international partnerships across Europe and with research institutions across the Pacific.

 

St Andrews is unavoidably distant from the Pacific in geographical terms, and as such CPS has emphasised ways to bring Pacific peoples’ own concerns and ideas to the foreground. Our growing doctoral alumni includes two Papua New Guineans, and our research projects work in collaboration with partners throughout the Pacific region, especially in Fiji, Hawai’i, Papua New Guinea and Samoa.

 

CPS has also played a key impact role in developing research-policy knowledge exchanges with international and regional development and governance agencies – to ensure a basis guided by Pacific perspectives and social science evidence. Our Pacific Connections series of accessible research-policy and public engagement events aims to demonstrate the contemporary realities of Pacific peoples’ lives and the possibilities of academic research.

Time and the ethnographic horizon in moments of crisis

The Centre for Pacific Studies at the University of St Andrews announces a new research venture to explore the time horizons that inform people’s perceptions of crisis. It is supported by the International Balzan Foundation, as the second half of the 2018 Balzan Prize in Social Anthropology awarded to Marilyn Strathern.
