Whales and us: The past, present and future

New Zealand has a long history with whales. Whalers played a crucial role in our colonial history and we had a thriving whaling industry for many years until stocks were decimated.

Today whales have taken on new importance for Māori and Pakeha New Zealanders as cultural symbols and generators of tourist revenue. Pacific nations have declared 2016 the "Pacific Year of the Whale". We think this is an excellent opportunity for an interdisciplinary consideration of the extraordinary, difficult, bloody, and political relationship between humans and whales throughout New Zealand’s history and looking into its future.

Our Winter Lecture Series brings together scholars from the University of Auckland and elsewhere in New Zealand from a variety of disciplines and professions. They'll identify key points of conflict and convergence in cetacean and human histories. They'll look at the ways humans have used whales as devices of profit and imagination, the exciting new trends in scientific understandings of whales, and the future of both our species.
