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 management and memory 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'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.
Hannah is the author of A History of the Modern Australian University, a book published in 2014 by NewSouth Publishing. Hannah's research on the history of higher education has been the subject of discussion in the public sphere and she is a regular contributor to the media, in newspapers like The Australian and the Sydney Morning Herald as well as The Conversation and London's Times Higher Education.
Hannah teaches modern history, historiography and Australian Indigenous History. She has supervised honours and postgraduate work in labour history, Aboriginal history, history of capitalism and gender history.

Dr Nell Musgrove is an Australian historian with a particular interest in the field of child welfare history. Her research is particularly concerned with the human experiences of people whose lives have been shaped by their interactions with welfare systems, and with methodological questions about how historians can hear voices from the past, especially those whose perspectives are often obscured in the historical record. Her two major monographs - The Slow Evolution of Foster Care in Australia (2018) and The Scars Remain (2013) - examine child welfare policy and practice over the course of more than a century to highlight the ways in which successive generations have been harmed by systems which claimed to protect them, and the extent to which historical failures have been recognised and addressed.
Dr Musgrove is a distinguished archival historian who has worked extensively with Australian colonial records. Her work is also characterised by collaborative research including the collection of oral histories, co-research with care-leavers and others directly impacted by the history under examination, and interdisciplinary work.
Dr Musgrove has experience supervising research students across a range of topics related to Australian history, child welfare history, gender history and Indigenous methodologies at Honours and postgraduate levels, and is an ACU accredited Higher Degree Research Supervisor.

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.
