I’m a social and environmental historian based at Deakin University, Australia. This blog brings together my work on the Scottish diaspora since 2009. My research in this area has spanned from the late-eighteenth century until the Second World War, covering Scottish identity and culture in Australia, Scotland and the British Empire, Scottish-Indigenous relations, sites of memory, visual and material culture, and migrant networks. You’ll also find many short articles I’ve written for The Scottish Banner between since 2010.
My book, The Scots in Australia, 1788-1938, will be available in 2017 from Boydell & Brewer. Apart from being a historian of the Scots in Australia, my other research focus is environmental history.
