1.2 Editors’ Foreword

The Association for the Study of the Chinese and their Descendants in Australasia and the Pacific Islands (ASCDAPI) and the History Department of the University of Otago jointly held a conference in Dunedin, New Zealand in November, 1998.

The theme was 'Chinese in Australiasia and the Pacific: Old and New Migrations and Cultural Change'. The speakers included both academic and non-academic researchers, a mix which has proven successful in ASCDAPI conferences in Australia.

There were 39 papers presented. This Dunedin Conference brought together much of the present New Zealand work and knowledge on this country's Chinese residents, complemented by the subjects of the Australian speakers and Bill Willmott's paper on Vanuatu. As a result, alternating ASCDAPI conferences may eventuate in Australia and New Zealand.

We are pleased to present 28 of the conference papers.

Brian Moloughney,
History Department, University of Otago.
