In this episode of the Monsoon Podcast, Kai Clark dives below the surface of the Pacific region and the reasons it's worth exploring.

Covering over 30 per cent of the Earth's surface, the Pacific is home to a multitude of countries, cultures, and languages. Yet when we discuss this region, if at all, the conversation is limited to politics and security or the impacts of climate change.

What can we learn from the Pacific beyond this conversation? What insights can the region provide on some of the most pressing issues facing societies today, and what do they tell us about knowledge itself?

On this Monsoon Podcast, Kai Clark delves into the Pacific region with PhD candidate Bianca Hennessy and Pacific Studies student Oliver Lilford.

Bianca Hennessy is a PhD candidate at the School of Culture, History and Language at the Australian National University. Her research seeks to understand how Pacific Studies is taught and understood throughout different universities in the Pacific.

Oliver Lilford is a 3rd year Bachelor of Philosophy student at the Australian University specialising in Pacific Studies.
