            Geoff Tristram's book Mr Maori Goes Home tells the comedic story of a road trip across New Zealand, filled with many real life parallels including the author's obsession with anything to do with the Finn brothers. The novel spans the entire depth and breadth of New Zealand, but i...ncludes Te Awamutu as an important stop-off point. Mr Tristram, a British artist, illustrator, cartoonist and author wrote the book based on his own experiences travelling the country a few years ago. The book details a British man's adventures across the country in a motor home after his dead uncle's will requires him to return a stolen Maori carving in order to receive a large inheritance

            Biopolitical Media: Catastrophe, Immunity and Bare Life (Hardback)

            This book presents an historical account of media and catastrophe that engages with theories of biopolitics in the work of Michel Foucault, Giorgio Agamben, Roberto Esposito, Michael Hardt, Antonio Negri and others. It explains how responses to catastrophe in both media and cultu...ral criticism over the past 150 years are embedded in biological conceptions of life and death, health and illness, and human and non-human species. Mediated violence and destruction are often understood today in terms of the transmission of collective memory and according to therapeutic or redemptive accounts of cultural trauma. In contrast to these approaches this book emphasizes the use of media to capture viewer attention through shock, monitor and control bodies in economies of production and consumption, enmesh social relations in information networks, and situate subjects in discourses of victimhood, immunity, survival, and resilience.

            From the Flint water crisis to the Dakota Access Pipeline controversy, environmental threats and degradation disproportionately affect communities of color, with often dire consequences for people's lives and health. Racial Ecologies explores activist strategies and creative resp...onses, such as those of Mexican migrant women, New Zealand Maori, and African American farmers in urban Detroit, demonstrating that people of color have always been and continue to be leaders in the fight for a more equitable and ecologically just world.Grounded in an ethnic-studies perspective, this interdisciplinary collection illustrates how race intersects with Indigeneity, colonialism, gender, nationality, and class to shape our understanding of both nature and environmental harm, showing how and why environmental issues are also racial issues. Indeed, Indigenous, critical race, and postcolonial frameworks are crucial for comprehending and addressing accelerating anthropogenic change, from the local to the global, and for imagining speculative futures. This forward-looking, critical intervention bridges environmental scholarship and ethnic studies and will prove indispensable to activists, scholars, and students alike.
