about TNO

The New Outrigger is an online platform for emerging perspectives, research, and commentary on Oceania. As a digital storytelling platform that speaks across geographical and institutional boundaries, we are interested in content that elevates and amplifies the rich and vibrant humanity of the region, its people and cultures in all forms. We’re interested publishing stories aboutĀ arts and heritage, climate change, the environment, language, material culture, Pacific communities (regional and diasporic), history and popular culture.

This website is a project of Mitiana Arbon and Bianca Hennessy, and supported by the Australian National University’s Pacific Institute.

We edit this website from Canberra, on the land of the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples. Sovereignty of this land was never ceded. We extend warm respect to all Indigenous people who visit this site, across Oceania and beyond.
