              Reading Pakeha?: Fiction and Identity in Aotearoa New Zealand (Hardback)

              By Stachurski, Christina

              Aotearoa New Zealand, a tiny Pacific country, is of great interest to those engaged in postcolonial and literary studies throughout the world. In all former colonies, myths of national identity are vested with various interests. Shifts in collective Pakeha (or New Zealand-Europea...n) identity have been marked by the phenomenal popularity of three novels, each at a time of massive social change. Late-colonialism, anti-imperialism, and the collapse of the idea of a singular 'nation' can be traced through the reception of John Mulgan's Man Alone (1939), Keri Hulme's the bone people (1983), and Alan Duff's Once Were Warriors (1990). Yet close analysis of these three novels also reveals marginalization and silencing in claims to singular Pakeha identity and a linear development of settler acculturation. Such a dynamic resonates with that of other 'settler' cultures - the similarities and differences telling in comparison. Specifically, Reading Pakeha? Fiction and Identity in Aotearoa New Zealand explores how concepts of race and ethnicity intersect with those of gender, sex, and sexuality. This book also asks whether 'Pakeha' is still a meaningful term.

              The topic of wettability (measured in terms of contact angle) is of tremendous interest from both fundamental and applied points of view, Wettability plays an essential role in many industrial processes, so an understanding of factors dictating wettability and how to modulate it ...is of paramount importance. In the last years there has been an explosive interest in superhydrophobic surfaces (i.e., surfaces with water contact angle of 150 or higher) because of their relevance/importance in many areas ranging from self-cleaning windows to nanofluidics. Also recently there has been heightened activity in the field of electrowetting.
