I teach in the areas of New Zealand, Australian and Pacific History, Cultural and Art History as well as Public History. Research interests include histories of Britishness and Imperial Culture, histories of material and visual culture, as well as women’s history and the politics of belonging. Significant research includes women’s cultural citizenship in New Zealand. I am currently interested in the politics of emotion in late nineteenth century New Zealand.
