About Fellow's Work: 

Teresia Teaiwa taught in the Pacific Studies Programme in Va'aomanū Pasifika, at Victoria University of Wellington (VUW). She completed her PhD in History of Consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2001 on the topic of "Militarism, Tourism and the Native: Articulations in Oceania,"  Her research interests included militarization and gender in the Pacific Islands, history and politics of Fiji, Pacific women's history and activism, and theory and pedagogy in Pacific Studies. She was also a published poet and spoken word artist. Teresia’s untimely passing on March 21, 2017 was a terrible loss for Pacific Studies, Feminist Studies and activist communities.
