Nick Carter is Associate Professor in Modern History. Before joining ACU in July 2013, he was formerly Head of History at the University of Wales, Newport (UK), 2010-13, and Head of History at De Montfort University, Leicester (UK), 2001-04. He has held Visiting Fellowships at the University of Southampton (UK), the University of New South Wales and Monash University. He is a specialist in nineteenth and twentieth century Italian history and historiography, including the Italian Risorgimento in transnational context and the difficult heritage of Fascist monuments, monumental art and architecture in postwar Italy. A/Prof Carter has also written and published on the topic of Britain's difficult relationship with the European Union.
In 2013, the Australian Journal of Politics and History declared his book Modern Italy in Historical Perspective (London: Bloomsbury Academic, 2010) an 'instant classic alongside works by [Richard] Bosworth, [Denis] Mack Smith and [Paul] Ginsborg.' His edited book, Britain, Ireland and the Italian Risorgimento, was published in 2015 by Palgrave Macmillan. The book has been described by Eugenio Biagini (Cambridge University) as an 'innovative, sophisticated and multi-dimensional reappraisal of some of the key aspects of this fascinating page of transnational history'.
Nick is currently engaged on two major research projects:
1. After Mussolini: The Difficult Heritage and Architectural Legacy of Dictatorship in Italy. Under contract with Cambridge University Press.
2. Conviction Politics: The Convict Routes of Australian Democracy. Nick is a Chief Investigator on this international and multidisciplinary ARC Linkage project (2020-2023).
