Career Summary

Biography

Jillian Barnes is a cross-disciplinary researcher interested in critical tourism studies, environmental history, colonial and Indigenous relationships in Australian history, the history of travel and tourism (especially transformation of Aboriginal reserves into national parks and world heritage sites), representation and power. Her current research projects include the History of Aboriginal Sydney (delivered online with GPS mapping),  the history of the National Tourism Organisation phenomenon, and the relationship between tourism, visual culture and Australia's history of human right and environmental conservation

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 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.

Teaching Expertise
Since 2011, Jillian has coordinated and taught HIST3620 Maps & Dreams: Aboriginal-Colonial Relationships in Australian History and HIST3242 Growing up in Australia (History of Childhood) at The University of Newcastle. During 2011 and 2012, Jillian received Well Regarded Lecturer Awards. Between 2003 and 2011, Jillian also taught Australian History at The University of Sydney, including Race Relations and Australian Frontiers, Koori Culture and Land, and Australia's Underworld: Stories and Methods.
