Dr Kristyn Harman is a Senior Lecturer in History in the School of Humanities who specialises in cross-cultural encounters across Britain's nineteenth-century colonies, and twentieth-century Australasia. Her thematic interests cohere around socio-cultural frontiers, including: transportation to, and within, the British Empire's penal colonies; frontier warfare; Indigenous incarceration; colonial domesticity; and the Australian and New Zealand home fronts during World War Two.

Since being in Tasmania, she has been a visiting scholar with the Centre for Research on Colonial Culture at Otago University in Dunedin, New Zealand; a visiting scholar with the International Research Training Group Diversity: Mediating Difference in Transcultural Spaces, at Universität Trier in Germany; and a visiting researcher at Monash University's Prato campus in Tuscany, Italy.

Research Themes

Kristyn's research across socio-cultural frontiers aligns with the University of Tasmania's theme area of Creativity, Culture, and Society.

Collaboration

Kristyn has recently worked with Dr Elizabeth Grant at the University of Adelaide on two projects. They have researched and published on the use of chains in colonial Australia on Aboriginal people in policing and prisons, and on dark tourism focusing on the (in)famous Derby 'prison tree' in Western Australia which was likely never used as a site of incarceration for Indigenous people. Kristyn has worked with Dr Nicholas Brodie on a research project that has revealed the existence of several alternate designs for the renowned colonial-era picture boards used to communicate with Tasmanian Aboriginal people and potentially with semi-literate colonists, and offered a new reading of these boards. Kristyn has also collaborated with Professor Hamish Maxwell-Stewart to reveal the existence and extent of the phenomenon of Aboriginal deaths in custody in colonial Australia during the nineteenth century, situating this within an international comparative framework. Their resulting article was published in the top tier Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History.

Awards

Australian Historical Association Kay Daniels Award 2014 for Aboriginal Convicts: Australian, Khoisan, and Maori Exiles. Shortlisted for the Bert Roth award for best work in New Zealand labour history in 2014 for ''Making Shift': Mary Ann Hodgkinson And Hybrid Domesticity In Early Colonial New Zealand'

Current projects

Kristyn is currently working on two major research projects which will result in a monograph and a co-authored book. The first of these is a history of Oyster Cove Aboriginal Station, the site to which those Tasmanian Aboriginal people who survived offshore exile to Wybalenna at Flinders Island were relocated in the mid-nineteenth century, and where most died. Her co-authored book is being written with Dr Elizabeth Grant and focuses on Aboriginal people and prisons from the colonial era to the present.

Reframing Australias Founding Narrative Through Investigating Intra-Colonial Convict Transportation (2018)$8,228

Ross Female Factory Mixed Reality Experience: Telling Female Convict Stories (2018)$13,118
Description
The built environments within which the 12,500 female convicts transported to Van Diemens Land (Tasmania) in the nineteenth century were incarcerated have largely been destroyed, often leaving nothing more than barely discernible traces of foundations. The purpose of the app will be to reinscribe the stories of the 832 Ross Female Factory women back into this barren locale. Our app will link richly-detailed archival records with place, acting as a prototype for a new digital approach to the interpretation of Tasmanian convict sites and convict history more generally. This project will situate Tasmania at the cutting edge of historical interpretation while simultaneously creating the necessary pedagogical tools to enable the wider public to engage with our local and regional aspects of the global story of forced penal migration, punishment, reproduction and settlement.

The Deeper Meaning of Embodiment for Knowledge Creation at UTAS (2016)$6,978
Description
Along with colleagues from across the disciplinary spectrum we want to develop a sound understanding of:1. The different meanings and manifestations of embodiment within different disciplines2. How being embodied affects the way we do research (e.g., being in a place vs communication over a distance; conducting research in harsh environments)3. How embodiment helps us understand links between our research and the subject matters that we look at (e.g., understanding music or literature as both abstract concepts and embodied experiences of 'doing'; 'doing' maths being grounded in embodiment (eg Lakoff and Nunez 2000) as is aesthetics applied when evaluating a proof.
