Personal profile


I completed my B.A. (Hons) at Monash University in 1992, and I have an M.A. (1998) and a PhD (2002) from the University of Melbourne. I am interested in the effects of Jewish emancipation on the non-Jewish world, ranging across French, British, and Mediterranean settings. I have other interests, too, and I have published on the history of migration to Australia, and the Eurovision Song Contest. My most recent book is Smuggled: An Illegal History of Journeys to Australia, with New South Publishing, co-authored with Ruth Balint.

I am currently completing a history of competitive imperialism in the Mediterranean of the Napoleonic Wars, told through the prism of the activities of a Jewish trading house, based in Algiers. This is tentatively entitled The Kings of Algiers, and will be published by Princeton University Press.
