AUT/1H Casual Academic - Unit 102516,
Dean's Unit - School of Humanities & Comm Arts
I graduated with a BA (Hons) from the University of Canterbury (Christchurch, New Zealand) in 2005 majoring in History and English. In 2011 I completed a PhD on New Zealand literary history and colonial writing networks at the University of Canterbury. While writing my thesis, I spent a year at Christ Church, Oxford as the inaugral recepient of the Edward Gibbon Wakefield Doctoral Scholarship.
I am currently working with Dr Jason Ensor and the Digital Humanities Research Group on the ARCHivER project (Angus & Robertson Collection for Humanities and Education Research), which is funded by the Australian National Data Service. For this, we are curating a digital archive of manuscript material relating to iconic Australian publisher Angus & Robertson, which is housed at the State Library of New South Wales. We are working to open up this high value paper-based collection using digital techniques, including structured metadata and linked data tags based on a controlled vocabulary.
Recent publications include:
""A book is a book, all the world over": New Zealand and the Colonial Writing World 1890-1945", Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History, 45:5 (2015), pp..861-881.
"New Zealand and the Tasman Writing World", History Australia, 10:3 (2013), pp. 129-148.
My book, The Expatriate Myth: New Zealand writers and the colonial world, was published in March 2018 with Otago University Press.
