Personal profile


Jeremy is an archaeologist with the Monash Indigenous Studies Centre. His key research interests include archaeologies of the recent past, partnership archaeology, mission archaeology and Indigenous agency, archaeology in the tropics, Indigenous heritage in settler colonialism, and island and coastal archaeology.

Jeremy’s research generally focuses on the recent past, and is strongly interdisciplinary and collaborative. His doctoral work focused on the archaeology of 19th and 20th-century missions in western Torres Strait. This was a partnership archaeology project with the Mualgal community (the traditional owners of the island of Mua and surrounding islands, reefs and seas) of Kubin village. The project engaged with texts, memories, oral traditions, material culture, Mualgal ways of thinking about the past, and archaeology to chart the transforming place of these key ancestral villages and Christian missions.

Jeremy is currently working on partnership archaeology projects with numerous communities in Torres Strait. This work has mainly focused on examining social networks and interactions in the region during the Late Holocene. He is also working on research collaborations with Indigenous communities along with researchers from many Australian institutions on projects in Taungurung Country in Central Victoria and in Marra Country, southwest Gulf of Carpentaria.
