Significant Contributions to this research
Judith Smart's research interests focus on twentieth-century Australian history. She has coedited (with Tony Wood) a collection of articles on social change and war in Australia and New Zealand, An Anzac Muster, and (with John Murphy) a collection of articles on the 1950s, The Forgotten Fifties. She also edited a special issue of Australian Historical Studies on writing the history of women in Australia, Twenty Years On. Her other interests and published work deal with women and political protest, women and religion, conservative women's organisations, suffrage and postsuffrage movements, temperance reform, wartime propaganda, the social history of venereal disease, and Billy Graham's 1959 crusade. She was the editor of Australian Historical Studies from 1994 to 1999 and is currently engaged in writing a history of Melbourne during the Great War, and researching influences on the mass women's organisations, specifically the Housewives Associations and the Country Women's Association, from the 1920s to the 1960s.
