Dr Bart Ziino‘s recent article, ‘Ellie Wharton Kirke: Serving the Cause’, is now available on Professor Victoria Haskins’ ‘Anzac: Her Story’ site (University of Newcastle). This article addresses patriotic women and the First World War.
Bart teaches twentieth-century world history, and Australia in the two World Wars. Bart is an historian of Australian experiences of the First World War, and memory and commemoration of war in Australia and abroad. His first book, A Distant Grief: Australians, War Graves and the Great War (2007) brought to light the painful efforts of Australian families to grieve for loved ones whose bodies remained on foreign battlefields after the First World War.
