Dom Alessio, Dean of International Programmes and Professor of History, gave a keynote speech this week at the University of Vienna for the annual conference of the New Zealand Studies Association. The paper was co-written with Dr. Wesley Renfro from St. John Fischer College, New York. Dom and Wes’s paper was entitled “‘The Island of thieves’: Rethinking Empire and the United States in a South Pacific Context” and examined the way by which military bases were acquired in the region and the significance of such acquisitions – both historically (nuclear testing in the Cold War) and currently (Washington’s pivot to Asia).
