She has a special interest in the migrant experience during World War One both within the wider Australian society and as serving members of the first AIF. Karen has also published on Australia's post-World War Two mass migration schemes with a particular focus on the migrant hostel system and on the displaced persons including the so called “hard-core” of unmarried mothers and displaced youth.
