Dr Tiffany Shellam has a chapter, titled ‘Ethnographic Inquiry on Phillip Parker King’s Hydrographic Survey’, in the forthcoming publication Expeditionary Anthropology: Teamwork, Travel and the ‘Science of Man’, edited by Martin Thomas and Amanda Harris. The book will be published by Berghahn Books in January 2018.
Dr Shellam teaches Australian Indigenous history and sex and gender in Australian history. Her research focuses on the development of relationships between Aboriginal Australians and newcomers in the 19th century, particularly during exploration expeditions, in fledgling settlements and on mission stations. Tiffany’s research projects seek to unearth Aboriginal agency and strategies for coping with colonisation.
