Fascination with the interplay of people and place inspired the editors of this book to bring together New Zealanders from different backgrounds and disciplines to explore conflict and change found among New Zealand's sacred, historic, rural, urban, and coastal landscapes. All contributors engage with the underlying question: are there better ways to reconcile inherent tensions in the struggle with the land and with each other? Issues fundamental to identity are placed at center stage, including New Zealand indigenous rights and restitution, development and conservation, claiming and naming. The authors discuss issues ranging from the early-settler surveying lines to the Wanganui/Whanganui naming debate, the legal arguments over wahi tapu and Maori customary land to dairying in the Mackenzie Basin. In exploring different ways of framing landscape tensions, they seek new understandings of why such passion, reverence, and contest is generated, and they look for ways to identify new approaches to resolving problems. Making Our Place is the sequel to the well-received anthology Beyond the Scene: Landscape and Identity in Aotearoa New Zealand. *** "...interest is emerging in the study of those historical processes, political projects and social practices that contribute to the ongoing consittution of place, locality, homeland and community in the context of local, regional and global entwinements". Pacific Affairs, Vol. 85, No. 4, December 2012.

This book explores international trends in naming and contributes to the growing field of onomastic enquiry. Naming practices are viewed here through a critical lens, demonstrating a high level of political and social engagement in relation to how we name people and places. The contributors to this publication examine why names are not only symbols of a person or place, but also manifestations of cultural, linguistic and social heritage in their own right. Presenting analyses of geographically and culturally diverse perspectives and case studies, the book investigates how names can represent deeper kinds of identity, act as objects of attachment and dependence, and reflect community mores and social customs while functioning as powerful mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion. The book will be of interest to researchers in onomastics, sociology, human geography, linguistics and history.

The seas and oceans are currently taking centre stage in academic study and public consciousness. From the plastics littering our seas, to the role of climate change on ocean currents from unequal access of marine resources to the treacherous experiences of seafarers who keep our global economy afloat; now is a crucial time to examine how we live with the sea. This ambitious book brings together an interdisciplinary and international cohort of contributors from within and?beyond?academia. It offers a range and diversity of insights unlike previous collections. An ‘oceanic turn’ is taking place, with a burgeoning of academic work that takes seriously the place of seas and oceans in understanding socio-cultural and political life, past and present. Yet, there is a significant gap concerning the ways in which we engage with seas and oceans, with a will to enliven action and evoke change. This book explores these challenges, offering insights from spatial planning, architectural design, geography, educational studies, anthropology and cultural studies. An examination through these lenses can help us to better understand human relationships with the seas and oceans, and promote an ethic of care for the future.

English summary: This collection contains 15 essays examining the basic assumptions of science, religion and mathematics. Can we decide what to believe? Why do scientists do experiments and what can their experiments show? Is evolution a scientific theory? Is science a rational enterprise? Should we invent alternatives to unrefuted theories? What is Einstein's influence on philosophy? These and other questions are discussed in papers, speeches and essays for a broader audience, covering main problems in the development of science. The author wants to provoke his readers to enter the now-discredited belief-systems of earlier ages in order to compare these with their own. He thus uses the history of science to reflect on theories of science in the past and the present, using critical rationalism as a tool to enrich our view of the world. German description: Der Band versammelt 15 Essays, die vermeintlich einfachen Fragen aus den Wissenschaften und ihren Erkenntnismoglichkeiten nachgehen, beispielsweise: Konnen wir entscheiden, was wir glauben wollen? Warum experimentieren Wissenschaftler und was zeigen ihre Experimente? Ist die Evolutionstheorie eine wissenschaftliche Theorie? Liefern theologische Ansichten Erklarungen? Wie hat Albert Einstein die Philosophie beeinflusst? Die Erorterungen setzen kein Spezialistenwissen voraus, sie stellen aber einige Selbstverstandlichkeiten unserer alltaglichen Weltorientierung und unseres Blicks auf die Wissenschaften in Frage, indem die historischen Formen der Wissensgewinnung und (kritischer) Rationalitat zum Vergleich herangezogen werden. Theorie und Geschichte der Wissenschaftsformen werden in diesen weltlichen Predigten auf der Grundlage kritisch-rationaler Untersuchung in einen Dialog gebracht. Predigten sind dies im Sinne allgemein verstandlicher Auslegung komplexer Erkenntnisse und darin dem Vorbild Karl Popper folgend.
