My year as a research fellow …

Debbie

My 12-month research fellowship with the State Library of Queensland (SLQ) has come to an end. What a wonderful experience! While I learnt a lot about my topic, I learnt even more about myself.

Here’s my SLQ video interview about the fellowship, my findings, and personal discoveries. My thanks to SLQ for providing such a wonderful opportunity.

My research findings – an unpublished manuscript entitled “Queensland Women and War: a multicultural perspective of the experiences of female civilians during World War II” – is available at the SLQ.
