Scholar in a social movement: recording the collective praxis of social change workers



"In my PhD study of how the dominant cultural group in Aotearoa changes in response to learning about their racism towards indigenous Maori, I undertook to record the theorizing of my activist colleagues in the 'Treaty movement'. By following the movement's ethic of scholarly work serving social change goals, and with my scholarly resources of time and small research grants, i was able to play a key role in producing resource publications, facilitating a national discussion process and compiling important records of the movement for public access."
