Research Projects
Murdoch University Special Research Grant ($6,425) in 1999 for the project "Re-inventing Australia: Life Narratives and the emergence of new national identities for the 21st century".
Research Record Relative to Opportunities
I had an earlier career as a school teacher of science and mathematics and then returned to study literature alongside parenting commitments and part-time work. My study culminated in a PhD in Literature from Melbourne University in 1981 and my first lectureship in 1986. From 1996 I have been in senior management positions (Pro Vice Chancellor Research, Executive Dean and Pro Vice Chancellor (Regional Development) and have therefore not had the opportunity to devote as much time to research as when I was a full-time academic. However, I am currently recognised by Murdoch University for my research by inclusion in the Murdoch University Research Academy.
Significant Contributions to this research
The research flows from the pioneering work in the edited book Striking Chords: Multicultural Literary Interpretations that was the first book in Australia on the topic of the theory and practice of multicultural writing in this country.
