Amanda Nettelbeck is a Professor in the Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences at the Australian Catholic University, and Professor of History at the University of Adelaide. Her research centres on Australian and comparative settler colonial history of the former British Empire. It addresses the relationship between settler colonial violence and ideas of humane governance, the relationship of Indigenous people to colonial law; and the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism in historical memory. She is author, co-author or co-editor of numerous books, including most recently Indigenous Rights and Colonial Subjecthood (Cambridge 2019), Intimacies of Violence in the Settler Colony (co-edited with Penelope Edmonds, Palgrave 2018), Violence, Colonialism and Empire in the Modern World (co-edited with Philip Dwyer, Palgrave 2017), and Fragile Settlements (co-authored with Russell Smandych et al, UBC Press 2016). She is currently working on two collaborative research projects funded by ARC grants: a history of how the concept of citizenship has been envisaged in Australia from colonisation to the present, and a project on reconciling with histories of frontier conflict.
