Working Session: Imaginary Peoples of the Pacific
Friday, February 2, 9:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., Gravier Room
Oceania is peopled not only by human beings that anyone can see, but also by imaginary people whom one must be enculturated to experience and know. Our challenge is to understand diverse perspectives on apparently imaginary people, to document their range through comparison, and to explain their causes, nature, and consequences. This working session builds on last year’s informal session, but new participants are welcome. To be included in the session’s schedule, send your title to the organizer no later than October 30. Then, by January 20, send the organizer a full draft of your paper for pre-circulation.
The current lineup is:
