I was appointed Professor in 2014, having been Adjunct Professor at Flinders since March 2013. I am also Emeritus Professor of Cornish & Australian Studies at the University of Exeter, where I was Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies from October 1991 until December 2013. Previously, I was an Officer in the Education Specialisation of the Royal Navy (1979-1991), and later served as a Reservist (1992-2009) in the Media Operations Specialisation, of which I was Head (1998-2003). I was inter alia Senior Lecturer in the Department of History and International Affairs at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, 1989-1991. My most recent book is Australia in the Great War (Robert Hale, London, 2015) and the The Maritime History of Cornwall (edited with Alston Kennerley and Helen Doe) was published by University of Exeter Press in 2014. I am currently completing Labor and the Radical Tradition in South Australia, to be published by Wakefield Press, Adelaide, in 2016. A History of Sussex is also in press (Carnegie Publishers, Lancaster, forthcoming).
