PhD Candidate in History, The University of Queensland

I'm a PhD Candidate from the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry (HPI) at the University of Queensland.

My thesis addresses the formation of German communities in South Australia between 1838 and 1914 - focussing on associational cultures, patterns of public discourse, and electoral behaviour.

During my time at UQ, I've worked as a tutor for a number of courses: Germany from Bismarck to Hitler (1870-1933), Germany from Hitler to Reunification (1933-1991), and The Radical Right & Fascism in Europe.
