Biography

Pam's career began in Adelaide, where she taught Indonesian for ten years at Pembroke School, taking time out during that period to complete her MA at the University of Hawai'i. Returning to her home state of Tasmania in the late 1980s, she taught Indonesian and German in Tasmanian schools for five years, during which time she pioneered the use of what was then the cutting edge technology of teleconference teaching,to remote schools on the west coast and King Island. After a brief interruption to her career to give birth to twins, a post-natal interest in pursuing further postgraduate study coincided with an opportunity to take up a short-term contract position teaching Indonesian at the University of Tasmania. This led to further contracts, the completion of her PhD through Sydney University, and eventually a continuing position teaching Indonesian and Asian Studies.

Research Themes

Pam's research aligns to the University's research theme of Creativity, Culture and Society. She is internationally recognised for her research on postcolonial readings of literature and the continuing postcolonial effect of population shifts, including displacement and marginalisation. Her contribution to the field of migrant cultural studies began with the research she has done into minority groups in Indonesia, whose history and current status shares much in common with the migrant experience. She has presented and published on two groups in particular - the Chinese-Indonesians who lack an ethnic homeland in Indonesia and who have been marginalised by successive regimes, and the Hindu Balinese, whose ancestors left Java for Bali when Islam spread through Java.
