Publishing my research and presenting about my project

I thought it would be good to share an update about my research project before the end of the year. I published the first article from my project in June of this year in the Journal of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies (JACANZS): ‘Transnational Identities of the Global South Asian Diaspora in Australia, Canada, Aotearoa New Zealand, and South Africa, 1900s-1940s’, JACANZS, vol. 1, issue 1, June 2021: 45-77. The article is open access and you can view it here. I was really excited to have the article published 🙂

Over the past nearly year I have also given five presentations on my research project at International conferences all across the world. Specifically I presented them at the  following venues:

  • New Zealand Historical Association Biennial Conference, Online Conference, Massey University, Palmerston North, Aotearoa New Zealand, 24 November 2021
  • German Association for Australian Studies Conference, Online Conference, University of Trier, Trier, Germany,  1 October 2021
  • Polish Association for the Study of Australia Annual Conference, Online Conference, University of Gdansk, Gdansk, Poland, 23 September 2021
  • International Australian Studies Association Biennial Conference, Online Conference, Australian Catholic University, Melbourne, Australia, 10 February 2021
  • Korean Association for Canadian Studies Conference, Online Conference, South Korea, 28 December 2020

I previously gave a series of talks on a collaborative, team research project that I worked on:  ‘Australia in War and Peace, 1914-19’ and I found them very helpful in promoting the project but also to get feedback on what we were planning to do. I found the five presentations that I gave above on my personal research project equally useful. In particular, I have appreciated  the positive feedback that I received. This included excitement about my research project in general, its ambitious nature, its organisation, and the fact that it checked a lot of boxes for the assessment of competitive research grant applications internationally 🙂 I also received some interesting suggestions which I will give some serious thought to. I tried my best to present at venues which cover the main geographic areas of focus of my research project. I am generally quite pleased with the results, but it would be great to present at a South African Studies/History conference if possible. And I may present at other Canadian Studies/History conferences as well.

Moving forward I look forward to being able to carry out research in the specific case studies of my project. The continuing Covid-19 pandemic means that some countries are still not open for me to visit, but others are, which is encouraging 🙂
