Research Grants

To complete my fourth book, I was awarded a Marsden Grant from the Royal Society of New Zealand from (2004-6) as part of a team with two anthropologists, Professor Dame Anne Salmond (University of Auckland) and Dr Amiria Henare (Cambridge University), as well as doctoral students. The project also benefited from fellowships and grants from the History of Cartography project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2005), The University of Auckland and Lancaster University. For the completion of my previous book on early voyages, I obtained another Marsden Grant from the Royal Society of New Zealand (2002-2003), as well as fellowships from the American Geographical Society (Milwaukee, 2000), National Maritime Museum (Greenwich, 2001), Newberry Library (Chicago, 1999), Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1998) and University of Auckland.
