Dr Jon Piccini - Nat Sch of Arts (Faculty of Education and Arts)

Assistant Supervisor – Only eligible to supervise with a fully accredited Principal or Co-supervisor


I am a historian of twentieth-century Australia and its global entanglements. In particular I have published two monographs exploring the engagement of Australian activists, politicians and ordinary people with global ideas, firstly the 'global 1960s' and secondly Human Rights. My current projects include a history of American 'Rest & Recreation' leave in Sydney during the Vietnam War, and an intellectual and cultural history of Australian engagement with decolonization after the Second World War. I am available to supervise topics across the field of Australian political, social and cultural history.
