Research Projects
My current ARC project DP0449993, as Chief Investigator in association with Dr Chandrika Kaul of St Andrews University Scotland, has a national and international focus and has been funded for $99, 666 (2004-06): 'Empire and Antipodes: Australian and New Zealand involvement in the Empire/Commonwealth Press Union (1909-1970).

Previously, I was an Associate Investigator for Buckridge and McKay's successful History of Queensland Writing ARC (1997-1999) for $104, 279 and produced several chapters for the resulting collection.
Significant Contributions to this research
As an Associate Investigator for this project, I bring to it a national reputation in the field of media history developed over some twenty years when I began pioneering research for my interdisciplinary PhD on Queensland journalism history. Since the publication of my PhD by University of Queensland Press, I have contributed to recent national publications in the field and edited and contributed to an important collection on Colonial Journalists and Journalism (CQUP, 1997). Most recently I have edited several special issues on media history including the co-editorship with Professor Graeme Osborne (University of Canberra) of a special issue of the British journal, Media History devoted to Australia and New Zealand in 2002, along with the proceedings of the Australian Media Traditions Conference which I convened at Central Queensland University in mid 2001 (available on-line at http://www.ejournalism.au.com/ejournalist).
