Padro, Fernando F. (2018) The doctoral studies paradox: Indigenous cultural paradigms versus Western-based research practices. In: Postgraduate education in higher education. University Development and Administration. Springer Nature, Singapore, pp. 589-600. ISBN 978-981-10-5247-7

Abstract

This is an exploratory conceptual chapter regarding the ontological and epistemological premises that are present in the enrollment of Indigenous peoples in doctoral programs at higher education institutions (HEIs). The paradoxical nature of navigating through distinct points-of-view about two distinct cultural perspectives, that of the doctorate representing a culminating recognition of a professional culture based on Western tradition and the norms and values of Indigenous cultures. There are personal risks involved in undergoing an education predicated on conflicting messages paradoxes represent from prior personal and collective experience and from institutional dicta and expectations. This chapter looks at how an individual brings these elements together in a transformative manner that accepts or rejects governmental preference for enhanced participation by Indigenous peoples in doctoral education programs.
