Kyle Harvey is a Research Fellow in the College of Arts, Law and Education where he works on the ARC Linkage Project Migration, Television and Cultural Diversity: Reflecting Modern Australia. He is a historian interested in the social and cultural histories of media, migration, radical thought, and social movements in Australia, the United States, and the Pacific. He is also an experienced oral historian with interests in family history, memory, and biography. Kyle held the 2013 C.H. Currey Memorial Fellowship at the State Library of New South Wales.

Biography

Kyle was awarded his PhD in American history from Macquarie University, where he also taught Australian history, world history, and film history. His PhD research was awarded funding from Smith College (USA), the University of California-Los Angeles, and the Australia & New Zealand American Studies Association. At Macquarie, Kyle also developed online teaching resources, helped develop the Media Archives Project, and served as project manager for the edited volume A Companion to the Australian Media.

Kyle’s first book, American Anti-Nuclear Activism, 1975-1990: The Challenge of Peace was published in 2014 with Palgrave Macmillan. His research as the C.H. Currey Memorial Fellow at the State Library of New South Wales in 2013 has contributed to several journal articles and book chapters, and forms the basis of a new project on North America’s “nuclear migrants” who arrived in Australia and New Zealand in the 1950s and 1960s. This project has also been supported by a Humanities Travelling Fellowship from the Australian Academy of the Humanities.

Kyle is currently compiling an oral history of the Australia & New Zealand History of Education Society as its 2018 Oral History Fellow.

Research Themes

Kyle’s research aligns with the University of Tasmania’s research theme Creativity, Culture and Society. The ARC Linkage Project Migration, Cultural Diversity and Television: Reflecting Modern Australia is broadly focused on the historical and contemporary intersection of migrant communities and the television industry, and Kyle’s research here examines broadcasting policy, leisure, memory, nostalgia, and changing modes of cultural production and representation over sixty years. The project, led by Kate Darian-Smith and partnered with Museums Victoria and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, aims to engage with migrant communities, the screen and culture industries, and the broader public by extending knowledge of Australia’s television history and its multicultural history in new ways.

Kyle’s other research project looks to biography and family history to illuminate broader processes of Cold War and migration history. In exploring the stories of the North American “nuclear migrants” who fled to Australia and New Zealand in the 1960s, Kyle’s research uncovers how radical thought, trauma, and dissent connected individuals and communities on both sides of the Pacific.
