    My research expertise lies in the area of Australian and comparative social history, with a particular interest in the history of childhood, women's history, welfare history, religious history, history of the family and Indigenous history. I am the team leader of the Historicising Social Policy program within ACU's Historical Research Concentration, building on the influence which my research has had on inquiries and responses to Australia's history of forced adoption and abuse of children in out-of-home care.
