About the Author

Sabine Hess was awarded a Ph.D. from the Australian National University in Canberra and is currently teaching Anthropology at the Institute fur Ethnologie, University of Heidelberg. She is also working on an interdisciplinary project to document two endangered languages of Vanua Lava, Vanuatu, funded by the VW Foundation.

Reviews

"...the book's most admirable qualities are evident when Hess allows her ethnographic description to develop, in the attention she gives to vernacular narrative and linguistic analysis, and in the commitment that she gives to engaging with Vanua-Lavan sociality within a flux of historical change." * JRAI
