Prof Michael Roche PhD, DLitt

Professor

School of People, Environment and Planning

There are three major strands to Professor Roche’s writing and research that have been developed over the last 30 years: ‘historical geography’, Agrifood studies, and Geographic Thought

His major long term substantive research focus has been on forests. and forestry in NZ.. Research outputs in this area include his definitive works Forest Policy in New Zealand: An Historical Geography 1840-1919 (1984) and History of Forestry in New Zealand (1990). Unusual for a geographer, he has produced a number of biographical studies on major figures in the forestry sector for the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography. More recently this work has used networked approaches to empire to explore the flows of ideas, people and materials in the forestry sector.

Another long term research project has centred on society and environment in New Zealand in the interwar period. A focus of his efforts here has been the discharged soldier settlement scheme. His detailed archival research has indicated that ‘failure’ took several forms and was not as monolithic as the historiography suggests nor was it one of total failure; there were some overlooked success stories.

As the co-investigator in a Social Science Research Fund project on ‘Food and Fibre Production’ he worked on two newly emergent theorisations – ‘pluriactivity’ and ‘subsumption’ in sheep/beef and dairy commodity production systems in the late 1980s and early 1990s. A follow on project with collaborators from the University of Auckland was supported by a Massey University Post-Doctoral Fellowship focused on pip fruit. Work from this productive project contributed to the international debates on Food Regimes and commodity chains and formed part of a distinctively Australasian critique of the political economy of agriculture. This work has been continued as part of the Marsden funded ‘Biological Economies’ project.

Geographic thought is another been long standing research interest.  His work has included discussion of the genesis and importance of early text books such as Patrick Marshall’s Geography of New Zealand (1912) and the regional perspective of George Jobbern’s World Regional Geography of the 1930s. His interest in Jobberns is reflected in the recent publication of ‘A Geographer by Declaration’ (2010) which brings together a selection of Jobberns’ published and unpublished writing. He also published on Andrew Clark another figure in NZ geography who gained an international reputation as well as editing a virtual issue of the NZ Geographer featuring the work of Kenneth Cumberland.

Aspects of this research informs my teaching in 154.111 and 145.701 (agrifood), 145.213 and 145.214 (historical geography), and 145.706 (geographic thought).

Michael Roche’s research interests include historical geography especially colonial forestry and landscape transformation, contemporary agrifood studies, and the history of geographic thought especially as it relates to NZ. He has contributed to the New Zealand Historical Atlas, the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography, the and Te Ara and has edited or co-edited Engaging Geographies (2014), A Geographer by Declaration: Selected Writings of George Jobberns (2010), Past Matters; Heritage and Planning History (2007) and (Dis)Placing Empire: Renegotiating British Colonial Geographies (2005).

Project Title: Hybrid Nature in New Zealand Domains

The project examined attitudes to nature and ideas of scenic beauty in the 1890s-1900s by focussing on two public domains. This small scale approach complemented the broad brush national overview of Making a New Land Environmental Histories of New Zealand (2013). The selected case studies were Ashburton Domain and Pukekura Park (New Plymouth). They are linked by W.W. Smith who was curator of both Ashburton (1894-1904) and Pukekura Park (1908-1920). Smith was also a member of the Scenery Preservation Commission 1904-06 established to recommend areas for preservation as scenic reserves and to once and for all save the scenery of the colony. Through this work Smith developed a stronger appreciation of a more 'New Zealand' landscape aesthetic. Initially he had brought British landscape garden ideas to his work; Ashburton domain was created with an assemblage of British, Australian, and American tree species very much derivative of a British parkland ideal. Pukekura Park in contrast had developed very differently around a remnant of the lowland indigenous vegetation. Here Smith, by now something of an Eco-Nationalist created a naturalistic indigenous forest in an urban setting which reflected a new ability to see the indigenous flora as scenic.

Project Title: Soldier home and farm loans

The discharged soldier settlement scheme placed ex-soldier farmers on the land. Economist J.B. Condliffe, historians such as Sir Keith Sinclair, and geographer Ken Cumberland were all critical of the scheme, an interpretation that prevailed until the 1990s. This project continued the revisionist line of inquiry through detailed archival work that recreated the agricultural geography of selected soldier settlements in the 1920s and 1930s. This work looked in detail at the nature of failure, some of which is attributable to the unsuitability of the settlers but also to uneconomic properties and finally to deteriorating global economic conditions in the late 1920s. 'Farmer' failure/success can also be distinguished from the success/failure of 'farm' settlements; the former might leave whereas the farm might survive under new occupancy. The research has also shown that the Crown went to considerable, hitherto unrecognised, lengths via debt restructuring and farm amalgamation to keep ex-soldiers on the land but it questions whether persistence on the farm under difficult economic circumstances was really a measure of 'success'. Thus it has been possible to place the New Zealand soldier settlement experience midway along a continuum between that of Canada and Australia.
