Genda Sluga has published widely on the cultural history of international relations, the history of European nationalisms, gender history, and is interested in the history of identity and difference more broadly. Her most recent book is Internationalism in the Age of Nationalism. She is currently writing a new study of the Congress of Vienna that recovers the lost history of women and international politics. Both projects have been generously funded by the Australian Research Council. In 2002 she was awarded the Max Crawford Medal by the Australian Academy of the Humanities. In 2006 she was appointed a member of the International Scientific Committee for the History of UNESCO. In 2009 she was elected to the Australian Academy of the Humanities.
