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.

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 Italy in a transnational context and Fascist legacies. A/Prof Carter also has written and published on the topic of Britain and European integration.
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 latest 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's current research examines the material legacies and memories of Italian Fascism in the postwar and contemporary periods.

Dr Hannah Forsyth is Senior Lecturer in History and ARC DECRA Fellow at ACU.
Her Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award Project 'Are we all Middle Class Now? A History of Professions in Australia' is a three-year project 2017-2019. It aims to give an account of the growth of professions in twentieth-century Australia. It seeks to explain their relationship to changes in the structures and priorities of government and capitalism locally and through economic and institutional connections to international systems and organisations. She is conducting a statistical study of professions over the twentieth century and a political and cultural study of a selection of sample occupations, including Medicine, Law, Engineering, Teaching, Accounting, Journalism, Nursing and Social Work.

My research focuses on the social history of marginalised groups in twentieth and twenty-first century Australia. In particular I have researched Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander military service and the relationships between military service, citizenship, Indigenous rights and national identity. I am currently conducting two projects: one on the history of LGBTI military service in Australia, and one on the history of transgender identities in Australia since the early twentieth century. While most of my research focuses on Australia, I also have experience in comparative Indigenous history, particularly in relation to the United States and Papua New Guinea. I am available to supervise topics related to LGBTI, comparative and Indigenous history, particularly topics in the twentieth century.
