    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).

    My research focuses on global history, British and British imperial history, and Australian history. Most recently I have been working on the global history of gold rushes.

    My first book "Britain, China, & Colonial Australia" was published by Oxford University Press in 2016, and was later awarded the 2017 Prue Torney Fellows Award. I am the co-editor of two other books, "A Global History of Gold Rushes" (University of California Press, 2018) and "Fighting Words: Fifteen Books That Shaped the Postcolonial World" (Peter Lang, 2017), and a special issue of The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History, "Making Connections: Essays in Honour of John Darwin" (2019).

    Before coming to ACU I held research fellowships at La Trobe University and the Huntington Library in California and lectureships at Federation University and the University of Buckingham. From 2008-15 I was at Oxford, where I was a Rae and Edith Bennett Travelling Scholar, a Beit Scholar in Commonwealth and Imperial History, a Research Associate at the Oxford Centre for Global History, and the first Michael Brock Junior Research Fellow in Modern British History.
