Dydd da! I am an historian of twentieth-century Europe with a particular interest in (1) the social and political history of the 1940s, (2) the enduring legacy of the 1940s in post-war contemporary Europe (especially the politics of history), and (3) the history of protest and revolution, and the impact of both on power relations as they are actually experienced by people in their everyday lives.
My main research interest is Early Modern English drama, in particular the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporary, Christopher Marlowe. My main focus is on the ways in which these plays interact with and develop Classical ideas about tragedy, notably Aristotle's concept of catharsis, and engage with Virgil's Aeneid. I coordinate the following courses for the Discipline of English and Creative Writing:
Shakespeare (level 1)
Tragedy (level 2)
Old Texts Made New: Literary Imitation and Allusion (level 3)

Pam is a lecturer in the Department of Gender Studies and Social Analysis. Her teaching and research focus on the ways gender intersects with race, class and sexuality. Her work focuses on the gendered dimensions of cross-cultural practices for second-generation Australians and, in particular, engages with current debates in Australia on managing cultural diversity, strengthening social cohesion and widening concepts of national identity. In addition, Pam is interested in the critical evaluation of current models of masculinity.
History Honours prepared me for a doctorate on the transition from Late Roman Gaul to Early Mediaeval Francia, by using both the idea and the reality of the villa in the Roman province of Aquitanica Prima as a thermometer for cultural change into the post-Roman period. How, why and at what point did the concept of the villa segue into the core of the mediaeval village? This research required me to endure summer field trips to the warm and sunny heartland of France, roaming the wine-growing countryside in search of villa remains which were mostly excavated in the 19th century.
