Research Profile: Jione Havea

Jione works and plays around the intersections of cultures (with sympathies to the oral cultures of Pasifika), scriptures (trans-reading biblical texts and native wisdom), critical theories (accounting for bounded bodies, colonized minds, stolen lands, and othered planetary life and spirit forms) and religions (searching for solidarity, resistance, and protest). In real space and time, Jione lives between Wurundjeri country (Australia), the shadows of Maungarei (Aotearoa), and Sopu (Tongatapu).
