Abstract

MOVIES AND PACIFIC MODERNITIES IN WENDT AND SUBRAMANI MATTHEW HAYWARD Although there were important antecedents before 1900, and a proliferation of individual works in the fi rst half of the twentieth century, it was the 1960s and 70s that saw the emergence of a self-defi ning Pacifi c Island literature. Facilitated by the establishment of two major universities (University of Papua New Guinea in 1966, University of the South Pacifi c in 1968), and fi nding new print opportunities in the many periodicals founded at this time (including Kovave: A Journal of New Guinea Literature in 1969 and Mana, which fi rst appeared as a section of Pacifi c Islands Monthly in 1972), the new Pacifi c literature arose with the self-confi dence of the independence movements driving decolonisation across much of Oceania (Samoa in 1962, Fiji in 1970, Papua New Guinea in 1975). This literature was forged by a diverse group of writers, with many themes and styles, in a range of modes and genres, across various media. Albert Wendt and Subramani were instrumental in the growth of this movement, teaching and establishing creative writing workshops through the University of the South Pacifi c, guiding and editing later
