This year’s annual Association of Social Anthropologists of Aotearoa / New Zealand (ASAA/NZ) conference is being hosted by Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato, Anthropology Programme, at Whāingaroa (Raglan).

Participants in the 2019 ASAANZ conference engage with the multifaceted concept of ‘boundaries’. Boundaries are the mental resources and material artefacts through which human and non-human lives are ordered, controlled and differentiated. A boundary may be physical, political, economic, territorial, social, administrative, disciplinary, gendered, cultural, ethnic, moral, environmental, linguistic, genetic and more. Seen from any of these perspectives, boundaries are not just static entities but dynamic zones that produce particular kinds of interaction. Thinking through boundaries pushes us to examine how they are established and undone, delineated and dissolved, or otherwise further hardened and the myriad social forms that may emerge in this process."
