— Review of Great Expectations : Emigrant Governesses in Colonial Australia Patricia Clarke , 2020 multi chapter work biography

1 1 y separately published work icon Remembering Migration : Oral Histories and Heritage in Australia Kate Darian-Smith (editor), Paula Hamilton (editor), Cham : Palgrave Macmillan , 2019 17268678 2019 anthology criticism

'This book provides the first comprehensive study of diverse migrant memories and what they mean for Australia in the twenty-first century.  Drawing on rich case studies, it captures the changing political and cultural dimensions of migration memories as they are negotiated and commemorated by individuals, communities and the nation.

'Remembering Migration is divided into two sections, the first on oral histories and the second examining the complexity of migrant heritage, and the sources and genres of memory writing. The focused and thematic analysis in the book explores how these histories are re-remembered in private and public spaces, including museum exhibitions, heritage sites and the media. Written by leading and emerging scholars, the collected essays explore how memories of global migration across generations contribute to the ever-changing social and cultural fabric of Australia and its place in the world.'

1 y separately published work icon Locating Suburbia Paula Hamilton (editor), Paul Ashton (editor), Broadway : UTS Press , 2013 7694529 2013 anthology single work essay prose autobiography

'Suburbia has been satirised and mocked by the best of them from George Orwell’s 1939 caricature in Coming up for Air to Dame Edna Everidge from the 1960s and TV’s Kath and Kim in twentieth-first century Australia. For many of the generation growing up in the twentieth century, suburbia is, on the one hand, the remembered nightmare from which the human chrysallis escaped to experience adulthood and its pleasures elsewhere – he stifling, conformist sameness which nonetheless hid evil deeds like murder. Others hold dear the wistful nostalgic memories about growing up in a domesticated cosy world of backyard games so effectively mobilised by conservative Prime Minister John Howard during the 1990s in relation to Earlwood, a suburb of Sydney.'
