Pātai Te Ao Māori
Project supervisor: Associate Professor Anne-Marie Jackson
Institution: Te Whare Wānanga o Ōtākou
Raumati intern: Tane Whitehead (Te Ātiawa me Taranaki)
Project Summary: The primary focus of this project is to examine archival and historical material across Aotearoa and the Pacific in relation specifically to whare, as a potential whare metaphor for the new Centre of Indigenous Science, and eventual department, University of Otago.
The intern will be working with Associate Professor Anne-Marie Jackson, who leads the Centre, and the intern will join the research excellence rōpū of Te Koronga with other kaupapa Māori researchers and students. The Centre of Indigenous Science is a new kaupapa at the University of Otago. Within its early phases, the Centre has an opportunity to create new curriculum at the undergraduate and the postgraduate level.
Through the internship, the intern will experience being part of a kaupapa Māori research excellence rōpū, and develop skills related to kaupapa Māori research praxis; annotated bibliography/literature review and kaupapa setting.
