Special Topic: Governing Population and Society


Explores the relationship between population, state and society with a particular emphasis on the settler colonial and post colonial context of Aotearoa New Zealand and the South Pacific. Social theories of biopolitics, gender, racism and technology are examined in order to develop critical insights into population ‘problems’ of migration, borders, fertility/mortality, citizenship and diversity.
