Thousands of women migrated to the Australian colonies from Great Britain and Ireland during the nineteenth century. This mass movement of women commenced with the processes devised by the Emigration Commission of 1831-1832, followed by the work of the London Emigration Committee of 1833-1836 and continued throughout the century through a number of schemes funded both by the British government and private organisations to encourage women to emigrate.

I am currently Director of Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery and Museum. I have worked in the arts and cultural industry for over 12 years and believe that when well interpreted and exhibited, material culture immeasurably enriches our understanding of the past.  I published my PhD with Berg Press, London, as Bound to Please: A History of the Victorian Corset. My current research involves the Crinoline in Australia. I regularly present seminars on Dress, the body and sexuality.

Projects

Museum Solutions: Training for Museum staff and volunteers across all areas of Museum Management including Significance Assessment, Collections Issues, Preventative Conservation, Policy Development, Exhibition Solutions, Disaster Preparedness Planning Workshops and Public Programs.
