Fijian History


Dr. Nicholas Halter joined USP as a Lecturer in History in 2016. He currently teaches courses on Pacific history and historiography, and has ongoing interests in urban history, histories of tourism and travel, and the Micronesian region. His latest book titled Australian Travellers in the South Seas (ANU Press 2021) offers a wide-ranging survey of Australian engagement with the Pacific Islands in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In collaboration with third year undergraduate History students at USP, he developed a Fijian History mobile app to document some of the historical sites of Fiji.
