The European Society for Oceania (ESfO 2012) and Pacific History Association (PHA 2012) held their bi-annual conferences last week on opposite ends of the world (in Bergen, Norway and Wellington, New Zealand, respectively). From early reports, both conferences were very successful. If you were unable to attend, you can get a sense of what was on offer from the official conference programs for The Power of the Pacific: values, materials, images (ESfO 2012) and Generations: History in the Pacific, Histories with a Future (PHA 2012).
