Research Interests

I am currently undertaking a PhD in the Archaeology Department, focusing on Irish social identity (Irishness) in nineteenth century South Australia. My research site is an Irish settlement established in the 1850s near Kapunda. Known as Baker's Flat, this site offers a focus for examining Irishness at a variety of levels, including household and community, local and regional; it is also an opportunity to investigate the influences on an Irish community of the ideologies of respectability, improvement and capitalism.
