(p.214) Conclusion
Disturbing History

Robert Nicole

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter brings together the central insights of this volume and offers some concluding thoughts. It considers the history and nature of resistance in Fiji before asking what kinds of continuities and discontinuities emerge therefrom. The chapter then goes on to make deductions on people’s colonial experience in Fiji based on their resistant behaviors, as well as the kinds of periodisations that emerge in the brief histories detailed in this volume and what causes them to surface and fade. Moving further, the chapter considers this study’s role in relation to the possibility and value of writing subaltern history and of reading Fiji’s history against the grain. Finally, it outlines some of this book’s contributions to the present and future history writing in Fiji.

Keywords:   history writing, Fiji, Fijian history, Fijian resistance, colonial experience, subaltern history
