Our Director: Dr Ian Henderson
Dr Ian Henderson was born in Canberra and grew up in Melbourne and Tasmania. He completed his PhD at the University of Sydney in 2001, before lecturing at Griffith University in Brisbane. He began work at the King’s College London in 2004 and now conducts teaching and research within the Department of English Language and Literature while remaining associated with the College’s Menzies Centre for Australian Studies.
Dr Henderson’s research has three strands: colonial Australian literary cultures in the long nineteenth century with a particular interest in representations of Aboriginality; the history of nineteenth-century British reading; and Australian film. Between 2007-2010 he was foundation editor of 'Studies in Australasian Cinema'.
