Welcome! I am a historian of the eighteenth-century world, particularly the British Empire and the many Indigenous societies it encountered. I also have interests in visual history, anthropological history, experimental uses of biography, and issues surrounding higher education and the humanities. On this site you’ll find links to my historical writing, reflections on my historical reading, and discussions of various historical engagements (oh, and an unlikely page on swimming).
Acknowledgement: I live on Ngambri and Ngunnawal-speaking Country, and my university is on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country. Both are unceded lands, which have nurtured one of the oldest living cultures in the world.
