The new Professor of Māori Research at Te Wānanga o Ōwairaka-Unitec says research needs to be seen as a collective rather than an individual process.

Jenny Lee Morgan made her inaugural professorial address last night, about research that keeps us connected.

"Our strength is in working collectively, not only as academics but with our communities, with our schools, with people fighting on lots of fronts and our academic core warrior scholars or warrior leaders or warrior media deepening our connection that draws on not only research but on working with others," she says.

Professor Lee Morgan says there has been a lot of development in the field of kaupapa Māori and indigenous research since she earned her doctorate a decade ago with a thesis on the use of pūrākau or storytelling in research.
