Extensively utilising Maori-language textual materials, he has published widely on Maori history of the colonial period, including a monograph on Maori-language newspapers, Colonial Discourses: Niupepa Maori, 1855-1863 (Otago University Press, 2006). Angela Wanhalla is an associate professor in the Department of History and Art History at the University of Otago. Her research sits at the intersection of race, gender and colonialism, with a particular interest in histories of race and intimacy within and across colonial cultures. Her most recent book, Matters of the Heart: A History of Interracial Marriage in New Zealand (Auckland University Press, 2013), was awarded the Ernest Scott Prize by the Australian Historical Association for the most distinguished contribution to the history of Australia or New Zealand. Her current project is concerned with the politics of intimacy in New Zealand, which is funded by a Royal Society of New Zealand Rutherford Discovery Fellowship


"He Reo Wahine makes for fascinating reading bringing together as it does a wide range of nineteenth-century Maori women's voices out from colonial archives and in to the public purview. The extensive quotes, excerpts and wholesale reproductions of texts which fill many of He Reo Wahine's pages make for a rich, generative reading experience which is carefully guided by the authors' narrative." - Arini Loader, Victoria University of Wellington "This book presents a rich and ranging collection of Maori women speaking from the nineteenth-century archive. The hopes, the persistence, the effort to set down a cause are all apparent in the words of women presented in these pages. It is in various measures an inspiring, instructive and agonising read." - Charlotte Macdonald, Victoria University of Wellington
