- About Me
I've been a public historian since 1993. I worked in the government's historical section from 1993 until 2011.
As a public historian, I've published on welfare, photographs, general NZ history, crime and gender, and also the development of public history in NZ. I was also involved in the development of the best history website in NZ, www.NZhistory.net.nz.
I am currently working on how history is used in and by the public, and some very long-term work on sex and the city (focusing mainly on crime and stories about that).
I have been a member of PHANZA since its founding (before, actually, being part of the pre-PHANZA organising group), was its founding President and done various other roles in the organisation.
