Chairing ‘Careers in History’
Kiera is currently working on a second speculative biography concerned with the colonial artist, Adelaide Ironside, which will be published with Allen & Unwin in 2021. With fifteen years of university curriculum development and delivery across in-class, online and blended learning platforms, Lindsey has presented her masterclass on Speculative Biography nationally and internationally, been a consultant and on-camera historian with Foxtel’s HISTORY Channel, ABC and SBS, and is also a co-host of the 2ser GLAM CITY podcast and regular guest on ABC Radio National.
Dr Peter Hobbins
A lifelong fascination with the connections between people and places, and a desire to burrow into archives and libraries to piece together the stories of our past, has evolved into a passion for helping people to understand and appreciate our sometimes grimy, often quirky and always illuminating ongoing history.
Dr Iain Stuart
In his practice Iain is never sure whether he is a historian, archaeologist or a geographer. He has a strong belief that everyone working on Australia’s heritage should have at least a good working knowledge of Australia’s history. Iain’s particular research interests lie in landscape evolution and industrial development in particular how particular technologies are adopted and developed. He has recently published on Macquarie’s towns, Newcastle’s defences and Wheat landscapes.
