Career Summary

Biography


My career is associated primarily with research into histories of Australian wine growing. After gaining a first class Bachelor of Arts from University of Newcastle in 2004 - in which I wrote my thesis on migration, wine production and varietal politics - I was awarded a University Medal. This resulted in an Australian Postgraduate Award scholarship to undertake a PhD in History at the University of Sydney. My thesis was titled A 'Civilised' Drink and a "Civilising" Industry: Wine growing and cultural imagining in colonial New South Wales. During my doctoral candidature and since completing my degree in 2009 I have published widely on themes in colonial and imperial histories, migration, environment/agriculture, trade, business and consumption. In 2010 I held the prestigious Rydon Fellowship at the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies (MCAS), King's College London. In 2012 my first book, First Vintage: Wine in Colonial New South Wales (UNSW Press, 2012), received a international publishing prize and was shortlisted for the NSW Premier's History Awards as well as other honours. 

In the Australian Research Council Linkage Project, Vines, Wine & Identity: the Hunter Valley NSW and changing Australian taste (LP140100146) I am working with other investigators to meld environmental, business and cultural historical inquiries that aim to bring new understanding to the connection between people, place and ideas in Australia's oldest continually-producing wine region. Vines, Wine & Identity considers the changes that have occurred as European Australians (at times in collaboration with Indigenous Australians) have interacted with the native environment to produce invasive crops such as wine grapes, which have social and cultural as well as economic significance to the nation. As agriculture occurs in rural and regional Australia for urban and international consumers and tourists, the complex past and present entanglement of ideas and identities associated with these interdependent spaces is of particular interest to me. My research is concerned with the transfer and circulation of plants such as wine grapes, knowledge associated with their manufacture, trade and consumption, and the intellectual conceptions of wine.

I have a special interest in human migration and plant transfers to and through places at the margins of Australian history. New projects are titled Global Newcastle and Australia's Atlantic.

In May 2016 I convened an international conference on wine studies in the humanities and social sciences in conjunction with the MCAS in London, and in September 2016 served as an invited plenary panelist at the Australian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres Regional Conference at the University of Wollongong.

As Associate Editor on Journal of Wine Research (UK), I have responsibility for Humanities and Social Science contributions. I also serve on the steering committee for an extension of the Australian and New Zealand Environmental History Network.

Research students under my supervision are exploring topics on wine, transnationalism and settler histories.

© 2016 Australian Society of Archivists.Digitised versions of archival fonds with micro or regional significance daily join mass digitisation projects of books and documents in the global digital space. For historians, the exponential expansion of searchable digital archival material has required the revision of traditional research methods. The digital age has also shifted disciplinary boundaries such as the distinction between historian and archivist. This article concerns a micro digitisation involving collaboration between historian and archivist, not in archive access as is usually the case, but in archive creation. The experience of this collaboration is generalisable to other micro-scale uploads of scanned material enabled by digital technologies. This article is a case study of this experience. It uses autoethnography to explore the practicalities and ethical processes of decision-making to create a new digital archive of wine history during the pilot stage of an Australian Research Council Industry Linkage Grant. The decision-making process that transformed a historian as traditional archive end-user to archive creator highlights the challenges for both professions in the decision to digitise, the implications for expenditure of public funds and questions of digitisation and environmental sustainability.
