Macquarie University

Alison Holland is a lecturer in Aboriginal History and Australian Studies at Macquarie University, Sydney. Her PhD thesis, titled, 'Saving the Aborigines'. The White Woman's Crusade. A Study of Gender, Race and the Australian Frontier, 1920s-1960s, was awarded by the University of New South Wales in 1999. Prior to this she worked as a Sydney-based curator for the Historic Houses Trust of New South Wales, having earlier completed a Diploma of Museum Studies. She is currently reworking her thesis for publication. In the meantime, she has published widely in the areas of Indigenous and women's history in leading journals, such as Labour History, Australian Historical Studies and Australian Feminist Studies. She is also preparing a chapter on citizenship in Australian History to be included in the forthcoming Themes in Australian History, edited by Martyn Lyons and Penny Russell (UNSW Press), in conjunction with the 20th International Congress of Historical Sciences conference held in Sydney in 2005.
