Who do you think you/we are? Ko wai koe? Ko wai tātou?
This course is all about identity: yours and ours. It integrates A/NZ history and society with some health and media studies. First we look at you, the individual: who you are, where you’ve come from (whakapapa and family trees) and what you stand for (your values). We also look at how you are: making a link between identity, values and well-being.
Using historical events (because you asked for history), influential people, values and stereotypes, we'll examine what it means to be a kiwi. You'll also have the opportunity to compare kiwi culture with a culture of your choice.
