History staff in the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry concentrating on Australian History have strengths in social and cultural history, especially themes in gender and sexuality, political radicalism, and aspects of urban history, heritage and landscape. Special topics of interest to our staff include: sexual violence; studies of masculinity and the impact of WWI; transnational political experience, particularly in the radicalism of the 1960s generation; and the Chinese diaspora in Australia. Additionally, an innovative suite of digital resources dealing with the cultural landscape, heritage and oral history in the Queensland context have been developed.
