The moral imperative

Professor Hilary Carey's research into the anti-Transportation movement provides new insight into an important aspect of Australia's colonial history.

the moral imperativeIt is ideas, rather than events, that capture the imagination of historian Professor Hilary Carey.

"I am interested in what makes people do what they do," Carey says. "To me that is a far more compelling side of history than wars and political events. I suppose, like Arnold Toynbee, I think it is boring and provincial to imagine the past as 'just one damned thing after another'. Real history happens inside people's heads. I look at the rest of it as the marginal stuff."

Carey, a distinguished religious and cultural historian, has been on the academic staff of the University of Newcastle since 1991, has held additional research appointments at universities in Britain and Australia and was the Keith Cameron Professor of Australian History at University College, Dublin, from 2005 to 2006.

Carey's doctoral studies at the University of Oxford were in astrology and its role in medieval society but her research took on new directions after she returned to Australia and received a commission to write a history of the Catholic Women's League in the Archdiocese of Sydney.

"It was quite a departure from where I had started but I was surprised at how interesting it was," Carey recalls. "It really got me hooked on cultural history in general and opened the doors into religious and colonial Australian history and British imperial religious history more generally."

Those fields of expertise have serendipitously come together in an Australian Research Council Discovery Project Carey is leading investigating religious influence within the colonial anti-transportation movement.

Her work, in collaboration with one of her former PhD students, Dr David Roberts of the University of New England, is shedding light on a curious but little-explored aspect of Australian convict history: the role of clergy in the movement that brought transportation to an end.

"What has emerged from my studies is that many of the people who campaigned for the end of transportation, including the influential Congregationalist and journalist John West, were clergy," Carey says.

"What we are looking at is the connection between these religious agents and transportation and what motivated their attitudes towards it."

Carey, who authored the substantial ecclesiastical history God's Empire, Religion and Colonialism in the British World, has a passionate interest in the way religion and colonialism have interacted historically. Something she finds fascinating about the convict era is the apparent change in stance of many within the religious establishment, who initially supported the system, seeing it as an opportunity to create a 'moral empire' from the cast-offs of British society.

"Australia's convict history is an essential part of our national identity so it is important for us to understand all the forces at work behind it," Carey says.

"Not only is it important but it is interesting and it is dramatic - every human suffering you can imagine is part of it. As a cultural historian I am interested in what made decent people - religious people - believe that transportation was morally defensible, usually because they thought it gave people a second chance in a new country, then decide later to rally against it."

Career Summary

Biography

I am a religious and cultural historian. I studied medieval history as an undergraduate at the University of Sydney and as a research student at the University of Oxford. From 1985 to 1990 I taught at Macquarie University and Sydney University, and joined the History Department at the University of Newcastle NSW in 1991. I was Head of the Department of History in 2001 and Assistant Dean (Quality Assurance) in the Faculty of Education and Arts in 2002. From 2005 to 2006 I was Keith Cameron Professor of Australian History at University College Dublin. I am currently Ourimbah Director of Research Development for the Faculty of Education and Arts. I have held visiting research appointments at Balliol College Oxford (1988), the University of St Andrews (1996), the Humanities Research Centre, Australian National University (2001), the Medieval Studies Centre, University of York (2009) and, from April to July 2013, the University of Edinburgh. In 2005 I was made a Life Fellow of Clare Hall, University of Cambridge and in 2012 a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities (FAHA). From January 2014 I will be moving to the University of Bristol as Professor of Imperial and Religious History and Head of the School of Humanities.

Research Expertise
My research expertise ranges from medieval cultural history to religious history in Australia and the southern British and Irish Worlds. I have a particular interest in religious aspects of settler colonialism. I initially studied astrology at the late medieval English court and university and I remain interested in the long history of astrology as it reflects the encounter of the Latin west with Arabic and Greek learning and society. More recent research has focused on religion and convict society, the colonial missionary movement, church state relations, Aboriginal missions especially missionary linguistics, and Victorian medievalism.

Teaching Expertise
I teach courses in medieval history, historical theory and method, Australian and British colonial history, and religious history. At different times I offer: HIST1001 Europe and the World (available in 2013) HIST3005 Millennium HIST3059 Writing the Past: Controversies in the Writing of History (available in 2013) HIST3630 Chivalric Society HIST4060 History Honours II - Special Subject (The Colonists) (available in 2013) HIST6001 Writing History

Administrative Expertise
Ourimbah Director Research Development, Faculty of Education and Arts, 2012-13 Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Arts Honours Program Convenor, 2011 History Honours Convenor, School of Humanities and Social Science, 2010-2011 Research Convenor, School of Humanities and Social Science, 2007-2009 Assistant Dean (Quality Assurance), Faculty of Education and Arts, 2002 Head, Department of History, 2001

Collaborations
I undertake collaborative research in the transnational study of religion, empire and colonial society. With Dr David Roberts (University of New England), I am currently funded by the Australian Research Council (2010 - 2012) for a project entitled: 'Liberty, Anti-Transportation and the Empire of Morality'. As part of this grant, I am collaborating with Dr Glen O'Brien (Sydney College of Divinity) and Dr Troy Duncan to write the first national history of Methodism in Australia. With Dr Colin Barr (University of Aberdeen) I organised a conference on religion and 'Greater Ireland' which was held in Newcastle from 3-4 December 2012. This forms part of the research program on Religion and Political Life led by Dr Timothy Stanley at the University of Newcastle's Humanities Research Institute from 2012 to 2013.
