Career Summary

Biography

Jillian Barnes is interested in colonial and Indigenous relationships in Australian history, the history of travel and tourism (especially the re-gazettal of Aboriginal reserves into national parks and joint management of national/world heritage sites), the history of environmental consciousness in Australia, the history of visual culture (especially photography), and the history of Aboriginal Sydney (especially between the Hunter and Hawkesbury Rivers). My current research projects include the History of Aboriginal Sydney (delivered online with GPS mapping), gazettal of urban Aboriginal Places in North West Sydney, a transnational history of the National Tourism Organisation phenomenon, and the relationship between visual imagery and Australia's history of human rights.

Research expertise

Building upon her arts marketing and business management background, Jillian Barnes has worked with Aboriginal people within remote and urban Australia in documentary film production and in examining the role played by tourism in advancing socio-economic autonomy, cultural preservation and identity reformation. Jillian’s doctoral research has attracted media and scholarly attention for its revision of usual understandings of the power of tourism to shape nation building, historical understanding, place-making and identity formation; and of Indigenous peoples to counter touristic constructions through fostering new ideas of Aboriginality.
