[fusion_dropcap color=”#ff9800″ text_color=”” boxed=”no” boxed_radius=”” class=”” id=””]I[/fusion_dropcap]

have worked in the field of Indigenous History and Sport History for 27 years. After completing my honours I commenced a PhD in 2000. I looked at racism in sport (AFL) using the Krakouer brothers story to do so.

In 2005 my PhD was published with Allen & Unwin as Brotherboys: the story of Jim and Phillip Krakouer. In 2009 the book was adapted into a play and had a national tour commencing in 2011. In August of 2011 Legends: the AFL Indigenous team of the Century was published and launched at the MCG by Michael Long and Professor Mick Dodson. I have led major Australian Research Council grants most notably an ARC linkage grant that reviewed the efficacy of the AFL’s education programs relating to its Vilification Laws Rule 35. This was also published by Taylor and Francis as The Biggest Game in Town. In 2017 he co-published a book with David Whish-Wilson

Derby: WA footy fans on the game’s greatest rivalry with Fremantle Press.

I have worked at the following institutions: Murdoch University (1996-2004), Kurongkurl Katitjin (2004-2006), University of Melbourne (2007-2009), Curtin University CAS 2009 to 2018. In 2017-2018 Iwas a member in the set up of the Indigenous Players Alliance. I am currently a Senior Policy Advisor at the AFL
