How to nominate

How to nominate someone for the Te Rangi Hiroa Medal.

Guidelines

The Te Rangi Hiroa Medal is awarded biennially in four areas of the social sciences: historical approaches to societal transformation and change; current issues in cultural diversity and cohesion; social and economic policy and development; and medical anthropology. The medal is awarded to the researcher who, working within New Zealand, has undertaken work of great merit and has made an outstanding contribution towards the advancement of the particular area of social science.

  • Medical anthropology: relationship between human behaviour, social life, and health within an anthropological context.
  • Historical approaches to societal transformation and change: this includes appropriate contributions by archaeologists, physical and social anthropologists, historians of all sub-disciplines, and others using study of the past to elucidate important processes of change, whether in New Zealand or elsewhere.
  • Current issues in social and cultural diversity and cohesion: this includes appropriate contributions by criminologists, educationalists, geographers, linguists, philosophers, sociologists, social anthropologists, psychologists and others who make major advances in the understanding of current society, both in New Zealand and elsewhere.
  • Social and economic policy and development: this includes appropriate contributions by economists, political scientists, demographers, public health researchers, public and social policy specialists and others who make a major contribution to identifying and shaping social and economic trends, whether in New Zealand or elsewhere.
