Associate Professor Alice Te Punga Somerville 

Associate Professor Alice Te Punga Somerville

Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies

University of Waikato

At its heart, Alice’s research is about texts by Māori, Pacific and Indigenous people. A/Prof Te Punga Somerville’s work is underpinned by her belief that we (Māori, Pacific and/ or Indigenous peoples) are constrained when the stories about us are limited. She therefore focus on texts as evidence, sites and foundations of stories that are far more complex than those that are told about us by other people or even those that are generally told by ourselves.

A/Prof Te Punga Somerville’s MA and PhD focused on Māori written literatures, and as she deliberately sought broader contexts for exploring this writing she developed a twin interest and expertise in Indigenous studies and Pacific studies. She also writes the occasional poem.
