Place as Person

‘Place as person, landscape as identity:

ancestral connection and modern legislation’

Kennedy Warne

The 2019 Cumberland Lecture at the University of Auckland was given by Kennedy Warne, founding editor of the the NZ Geographic magazine, and a sensitive man with a deep feeling for Aotearoa and its many environments.   We really enjoyed his lecture on 22 August this year, in which he talked about the transforming of his own relationship with land as object to a deep regard for the ‘personhood’ of special places.

A copy of his beautiful speech is available on this page:
