Track Record
I am a mid-career academic with two outstanding monographs and other significant publications in the fields of Australian history, Indigenous studies and race relations history.

My career is multi-faceted, combining work in universities, Indigenous organisations, the visual arts and museums.

In my publications I draw on twenty five years of professional and personal involvement with Indigenous people and my membership, through marriage, of an extended Nyungar family in Perth, as well as training in anthropology, history, the visual arts and museology.
Monographs
Broken Circles: Australia's first comprehensive national history of the removal of Indigenous children (Haebich, 2000); described as 'a work of outstanding scholarship...[that] links the past directly to our current experiences' (Kidd, 2000) and 'an essential tool of reference' (Reynolds, 2001).
