Personal profile

Biography

Joanne is an ARC Future Fellow in Cultural Studies, researching the ways in which representations of childhood circulate in Australia to manage anxieties about national identity and history; and, particularly, the specific meanings attributed to Aboriginal children as sites of mediation, intervention, and impasse between settler-colonial and First Nations peoples. Most recently she is the author of Young and Free: [post]colonial ontologies of childhood, memory, and history in Australia (Rowman & Littlefield International, 2016) and The Importance of Being Innocent: why we worry about children (Cambridge UP, 2011), and co-edited Critical Childhood Studies and the Practice of Interdisciplinarity Disciplining the Child (Lexington Books, 2015).

I am available to supervise projects on the cultural significance of children and childhood and ontologies of childhood, and critical childhood studies more broadly; as well as social imaginaries of colonialism; critical race theory; feminist theory; and Nietzsche studies.
