ASHA 2022 Conference – 26 to 30 September
The archaeology of interaction
Duke of Marlborough Hotel, Russell, Bay of Islands, Aotearoa New Zealand
For any queries about the conference, please email
Conference theme
The conference theme is 'the archaeology of interaction.' The Bay of Islands has been a site of significant human interaction since the beginning of human settlement of the area. This began with early Māori interaction with the environment and between different iwi. In the 18th century, it was the location of early Māori interaction with Europeans, including Captain James Cook and Marion du Fresne. The conference is particularly timely, as 2022 is the 250th anniversary of Marion du Fresne's visit to this part of Aotearoa, an event that was devastating for local Māori and resulted in du Frense's death. In the early 19th century, Kororāreka/Russell became the site of ongoing interaction between Māori and Pākehā, as people from all over the world converged here to take advantage of new trading and commercial opportunities. At the same time, missionaries were pursuing their own ends in the Bay of Islands, as too was the British Crown. In 1840, Waitangi (just over the water from Russell) was the administrative centre, and the site of the first signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi/The Treaty of Waitangi.
The call for session proposals is now open, and proposals relating to the theme of interaction – with the environment, between different people, with material culture, between disciplines, etc – are sought. Variations on the traditional session format are welcome – for example, three minute papers, discussion panels, etc. Session proposals should be sent to
