Professor of History, Monash University
My research and teaching explores the ways in which life story evidence illuminates the past and its meanings in the present lives of individuals and society.
My books have explored the histories and memories of war veterans, migrants, adult learners and post-WW2 families, in Britain and Australia. As an internationally renowned oral historian, I write about the theory and method of oral history and life history research, including research involving recorded and written memory, diaries and letters, and family photographs.
