Indigenous academics at the disciplinary frontline: Pigeonholed, peripheral or pioneering?


This is a collaborative research project conducted with Associate Professor Susan Page (Director of Warawara, Macquarie University's Department of Indigenous Studies). 

The project comprises two national studies of how Indigenous academics experience their roles and work within universities in Australia. The first study (2009) examines Indigenous academics working in the context of Indigenous units, schools or centres. The second study (2010) focuses on the academics' work in 'mainstream' faculties, schools and disciplines.
