Research Supervisions
In 2002 Jennifer Jones completed her PhD, entitled “Aboriginal Women's Autobiographical Narratives and the Politics of Collaboration”, under my supervision

I am presently supervising 3 doctoral candidates who are researching material relevant to this project. One concerns news media representations of female politicians; one analyses contemporary Australian film; and the other analyses forms of identity, place and belonging in recent autobiographical narratives.
Teaching Programs
While at ANU and Curtin University I engaged in a number of seminars and conferences. I continue to keep close links with Curtin University where I referee the postgraduate project: Liveable Communities, Undisciplined Thoughts Series, New Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

In 2004 I have been invited to apply for a South African Research Fellowship that will entail co-teaching a graduate course on post-HREOC narratives with Prof. Dorothy Driver at the University of Capetown and visiting the Universities of Stellenbosch, Witwaterstand, and Durban.

I have an ongoing research relationship with Prof. Sidonie Smith, Chair and Head of English, University of Michigan.
