Dr Blackbeard is conducing research into the use of massacre on the Cape's eastern frontier during the nineteenth century. She is currently looking at connections and similarities between massacre on the Cape frontier and the frontier between settlers and Aborigines in Australia. She has already published work on the Eastern Cape Frontier and is planning to write several articles exploring the comparative aspects of frontier violence.
