Elizabeth Anscombe

Academic, School / College Educator, Enthusiast


Kiaora! My name is Ems and my PhD thesis engaged with Anscombe work on Intention, focussing on expressions of agency and how these can be evidenced in Letters to the Editor written between 1850-1950 by Ngāi Tahu (Māori). These expressions of agency sit counter to the colonial narratives of our history books, which primarily engage with the downward force or impact of colonisation on Māori (savage, uncivilised etc.). Anscombes work enabled me to uplift the agency of Māori during this period and subsequently holds great value to my field if Māori and Indigenous studies.
