Burdened in Business: Pacific Early Career Academic Experiences with Promoting Pacific Research Methodologies in the Business Academy
Ongoing calls to indigenise the academy renew debate regarding the value and significance of Pacific and Indigenous philosophies and methodologies. This paper contributes to this conversation by reflecting on our experience as Tongan women and early career academics promoting the utility of Pacific methodologies such as talanoa within business research in Aotearoa. We examine the constraints on and drivers to adopting talanoa in our respective fields to argue that institutional demands and limited Pacific capacity within the business space restrict our ability to work towards legitimising talanoa and drive future-focused directions in research. These factors hinder our ability to actively contribute to the agenda of indigenising the business academy.
