The Auckland History Initiative (AHI), a research collaboration at the University of Auckland, presents research projects from the 2022 Summer Scholars exploring aspects of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland's history.

These students spend 12 weeks over the summer break researching in the varied and rich archives around Auckland under the supervision of Professor Linda Bryder and Dr Jessica Parr.
This is the second of two talks in which the students will present their work.
The AHI views Summer Research Scholarships as an integral way to engage students in Auckland history and to strengthen relationships with the Auckland GLAMR (galleries, libraries, archives, museums and records) sector.
