Biographical details

Anne Rees is Kathleen Fitzpatrick Junior Research Fellow in the Laureate Research Program in International History. Her doctoral thesis, entitled Travelling to Tomorrow: Australian Women in the United States, 1910-1960, examined the Australian women who pursued professional and educational opportunities in early twentieth century America, and considered their influence upon Australian-US relations. As a Junior Research Fellow, she will undertake a project on Persia Campbell (1898-1974), an Australian economist and internationalist whose career spanned six decades and four continents. Entitled Persia Campbell, Living Standards, and Economic Internationalism, this project focuses on the issue of living standards in the so-called 'developing world' and will illuminate Campbell’s remarkable but little-known career, enhance our understanding of Australia’s ties to the world, and help rectify the marginalisation of women within economic and international history.

Anne completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Melbourne, where she was awarded the R.G. Wilson Scholarship for Best Arts Honours (2009), and holds an MA in History from University College London. Her work has appeared in Australian Feminist Studies and Australian Historical Studies, and she has been the recipient of an Endeavour Research Fellowship and the Ken Inglis Prize for Best Postgraduate Paper at the 2012 Australian Historical Association Conference.
