My research traces the development of nationalism in South Australia from 1901 to the 1960s, with a particular focus on the state’s relationship with Britain and the empire.

Through a study of commemorative events, I’m examining how imperial sentiment was shifting and changing at a time when ideas of colonial nationhood were slowly giving way to notions of Australian (continental) nationalism.

My research interests include commemoration, Australian nationalism, colonial nationalism, settler colonialism, Federation, and imperialism.
