The late Marie Olive Reay, for over 30 years an anthropologist at ANU, wrote a work on PNG Highlands women’s lives that would have been the first work in this vein had she published it when she finished it – back in the mid-60s.
Professor Francesca Merlan who found it (in shreds and patches) and edited it into readable shape, describes it as “still amazingly contemporary”.
Wives and Wanderers in a New Guinea Highlands Society will be launched by PNG expert Martha McIntyre.
The work is available online at ANU Press.
