I'm a PhD candidate and tutor in the Department of History at the University of Sydney. My research interests include histories of youth, gender, welfare, education and disability. I have a keen interest in digital history and all things web. My dissertation is titled "Help Us/Help Them: How Australian parents understood the problem of mental retardation, and what they did about it, 1945-1970." I haven't played Galaga for several years, but am now tempted.
