              This volume explores mixed race/mixed ethnic identities in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Mixed race and mixed ethnic identity are growing in popularity as research topics around the world. This edited collection looks at mixed race and mixed ethnic identity in New Zealand: a unique conte...xt, as multiple ethnic identities have been officially recognised for more than 30 years. The book draws upon research across a range of disciplines, exploring the historical and contemporary ways in which official and social understandings of mixed race and ethnicity have changed. It focuses on the interactions between race, ethnicity, national identity, indigeneity and culture, especially in terms of visibility and self-defined identity in the New Zealand context. Mana Tangatarua situates New Zealand in the existing international scholarship, positioning experiences from New Zealand within theoretical understandings of mixedness. The chapters develop wider theories of mixed race and mixed ethnic identity, at macro and micro levels, looking at the interconnections between the two. The volume as a whole reveals the diverse ways in which mixed race is experienced and understood, providing a key contribution to the theory and development of mixed race globally.

              Sociocultural Realities (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By MacFarlane, Angus; MacFarlane, Sonja; Webber, Melinda

              "Sociocultural Realities: Exploring new horizons examines sociocultural approaches in the education sector, from early childhood to tertiary. With few publications covering such a range, there is a common struggle to gain a better understanding of the impact of social and cultura...l discourses on learning and teaching; this book aims to encourage the discussion and application of the theory and practice by researchers, policy-makers and teacher educators in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and elsewhere. The evolution of sociocultural theory is illustrated, and its links to cultural diversity across these three geographically distinct settings are shared. By way of a range of personal experiences, and some innovative research that showcases sociocultural theory in practice, the book offers practical examples for educators to employ in today's diverse learning contexts. Three key messages recur: the importance of people working in partnership, the worthiness of protecting diversity and uniqueness, and the significance of participation as an enabler of success"--From publisher's website.

              Walking the Space Between: Identity and Maori/Pakeha (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              What does being a New Zealander mean in contemporary times? And what does it mean to be a person of mixed Maori/Pakeha descent? How do people identify within this dual heritage? How can they establish a sense of belonging in both ethnic groups? New Zealand today is a hybrid natio...n, and becoming more so. At least one in ten of us now identifies with more than one ethnic group. This book aims to provide insights and understandings about the challenges, issues, and benefits associated with being of mixed descent. In general, Maori have been forced to become bicultural and adapt to the dominant Pakeha society, far more than Pakeha have had to become bicultural and adapt to Maori society. The author explores the concept of opening a space between to enable ongoing interaction in which new forms of cultural meaning can be created and the limitations of existing boundaries can be blurred. This idea is liberating, in that it provides a platform for people of Maori/Pakeha descent to straddle two different and often opposing cultures, but with a sense of location within their culture of origin. Thus a dual heritage becomes a positive force which enables people to walk in all worlds with heads held high.
