Research Projects
My main current project is a history of the Returned Services League (RSL), established in 1916 and ever since a powerful, loyalist and conservative spokesbody for Australia's returned servicemen and women. The history will be not so much an organisational history, but a history of the RSL's contribution to discourses about Australian citizenship. The project will consider, on the positive side, the RSL and the elevation of the Anzac soldier to a position embodying Australian civic values and, on the negative side, RSL activism against minority groups such "Blosheviks", "Huns" and all "enemy aliens" in wartime.

A further project is a more light-hearted and popular collection of essays on "The Great Mistakes of Australian History." The idea is to use well-known blunders in Australian history as a way of telling serious stories about broader issues. The introduction of the rabbit and the cane toad, for example, will provide a suitable jumping-off point for a consideration of how Australians have interacted with their environment in the years since European settlement.
