New Caledonia field work and research

The New Caledonia: Field Work and Research course, which includes an intensive in-country component, explores aspects of New Caledonian culture, particularly through a study of recent imaginative literature. New Caledonia has undergone considerable change in recent years, emerging from near civil war in the 1980s to a consensus for constitutional transition.  Coursework will take place at the ANU and in New Caledonia, where there will also be excursions to the old convict penitentiary, the Kanak Customary Senate, the Tjibaou Cultural Centre, and a stay in Kanak villages in the Northern Province.

The course details are available on the Programs & Courses website.
