He has been widely published in leading Australian scholarly journals as well as writing for The Australian and Canberra Times newspapers. With Paul Strangio he is co-editing a book on Australian political history to be published by Melbourne University Press in 2009.

Fiona Deans Halloran received her PhD in History from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2005. She is currently an Assistant Professor of history at Eastern Kentucky University. Halloran is the author of a biography of Thomas Nast, to be published by the University of North Carolina Press.

Marianne Hicks is a press historian by trade, but became interested in webcomics in early 2001 as a tool for procrastination during her PhD at the University of Western Australia. In an attempt to legitimate her fascination with online comics, she began teaching, writing and presenting papers at conferences as part of her research portfolio. She is currently teaching International Studies at Monash South Africa in Johannesburg.

Lim Cheng Tju is a history teacher who writes about popular culture, history and politics in Singapore. His articles have appeared in the Southeast Asian Journal of Social Science, Journal of Popular Culture, International Journal of Comic Art and Print Quarterly.

Marian Quartly has taught and researched Australian history at Monash University for longer than she cares to remember. Her publications include the co-authored Creating a Nation, a feminist history of Australia. She is currently writing about gendered citizenship (male and female), about museums and virtual communities, and about the history of adoption in Australia. Her interest in visual representations of gendered citizens – in this case of workers and capitalists – arises out of the need to relate to a visually oriented generation of students.

Richard Scully has been active in the writing and teaching of history at tertiary level since 2004, when he commenced at Monash University as a PhD candidate and sessional tutor. His research interests centre on representations of Germany and the Germans in Britain, 1860–1914, of which those presented in cartoons are only one aspect – albeit the most interesting. After receiving his PhD from Monash in 2008, Richard was appointed Lecturer in Modern European History at the University of New England, Armidale, in 2009.

Simon Sleight is a graduate of Warwick, University College London, and Monash Universities. His work explores the processes of ‘making place’, the evolution of youth cultures, and the Australian presence in Britain. His doctoral thesis is entitled ‘The Territories of Youth: Young People and Public Space in Melbourne, c. 1870–1901’ (Monash University, 2008).

Stephanie Wichhart is an Assistant Professor of History at Niagara University in Niagara Falls, New York. She received her PhD in modern Middle Eastern history from the University of Texas at Austin. Her research focuses on British policy in Egypt and Iraq during the Second World War.
