Two diverse subjects are explored in informal talks from University of Auckland lecturers - the increasing significance of the Pacific to NZ identity, and a survey of the issue of corruption and government level. We'll hear from Associate Professors Damon Salesa and Tim Kuhner talking in front of sold-out audiences in a city bar during the Raising the Bar night held last August.
