Overly-caffeinated feminist bilbiophile, usually found lurking at gigs around Sydney and/or on Twitter: @bechawkings
But mostly, PhD candidate in the Department of Modern History at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. My doctoral research is on Australian popular music of the twentieth century, cultural nationalism, and popular culture media.
The name of the blog – ‘Thinking In Reverse’ – comes from what is (probably, maybe, almost certainly) my favourite song of all time. Have obsession, will travel.
[Could perhaps also justify its selection on cleverer, relevant-to-content ways: “thinking in reverse” is, after all, not a bad way to describe what researching and writing about history can entail. But let’s not pretend that was the main reason I chose it as a title.]
