Islander criticism: Waters, ways, worries

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This opening essay meets two concerns: The first is to situate this collection in relation to the current state of islander criticism, with special attention to the interweaving contexts of Pasifika. It will explain ways in which island-space (land, ocean, borders), island-roots (talanoa, orality, relationality, reciprocity) and island-routes (migration, diaspora, resettlement) “twist and turn” in Pasifika reading of biblical texts. The second concern is to introduce and interweave the essays in this collection.
