Dear Jonathan,

Thanks very much for joining. I am a former member of the now inactive Offshore Islands Research Group of NZ, but remain offshore here in Japan. Actually, I am involved with the Oceania Gallery of our museum, as well as research on taro, so still have connections to the Pacific Islands and New Zealand. I'm planning a visit home to Auckland next May, so might try to organise a meeting of Research Co-op members in Auckland then.

Please see our support group for the Island Studies Journal here:

Any activity by that group would help to raise the visibility of the journal!

Best regards, Peter
