The Waigani seminars and other talk-fests : looking back - and forward - in the Pacific Islands
Quanchi, Max (2009) The Waigani seminars and other talk-fests : looking back - and forward - in the Pacific Islands. In Pacific Science Association Inter-Congress, 2-6 March 2009, Tahiti, French Polynesia.
The brilliant series of Waigani seminars ran for two decades spanning the pre and post-independence periods Ppapua New Guinea, but this paper argues that the seminars, and other symposia, conferences, workshops and forums in the Pacific, have remained an academic exrecise and not achieved real outcomes.

Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
