Personal profile

Biography

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.

I have two current projects. The first is a history of the role of people-smuggling in migration to Australia since the Second World War. I have co-authored a book with Ruth Balint, entitled Smuggled: An Illegal History of Journeys to Australia. This will come out in May 2021, with New South Publishing.

The second is 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.
