in Reframing remembrance


My high school history teacher inspired me to value investigating the past and the ways in which we choose to tell its stories. Thank you, Mr Fairweather, for playing an important part in my ‘odyssey’. Many others joined me along the way and I would like to acknowledge them here.

My sincerest thanks to my mentor and friend Associate Professor Ben McCann for his kindness, generosity and ongoing support not only of this project but of me and my career more generally. I could not have done this without him. Thank you to Doctor Andrew McGregor and Associate Professor Michelle Royer for their valuable insights. Thanks also to Doctor Saige Walton for serving as a delightful colleague and role model in recent years.

I am grateful to have benefited from the teaching of the following esteemed educators who guided me at school, university and beyond: Kerry and Greg Elliott, Judy Taylor, Joh Hartog, Doctor Tiffany Lyndall-Knight, Doctor Colette Mrowa-Hopkins, Associate Professor Eric Bouvet, Professor John West-Sooby and Professor Natalie Edwards. I also wish to thank my supporters Rory, Nic, Alex, Peter, Katherine, Eddie, Clare, Aaron, Hayden, Steph, Simon, Michael, Laura, Trephina, Lesley and Joe, as well as my grandparents Ian and Marian.

Finally, I offer my eternal gratitude to the two people who everyday teach me the importance of compassion, honesty and courage – my mother Helen and my sister Annie – to whom this book is dedicated.
