Most of my research and teaching deals with the history of nationalism and state-building since the Enlightenment, focusing particularly on the revolutionary and Napoleonic era, c.1780-1830. I am especially interested in transnational approaches – not only concerning the genesis of European nation-states, but also the interconnectedness of the Revolutions worldwide.

Karen Schamberger is a curator and historian with a love of museums and public history. She is currently working at the National Museum of Australia as part of a team developing a new environmental history gallery. She has previously worked on the Identity: Yours, Mine, Ours exhibition (2011) at the Immigration Museum and Journeys exhibition (2009) at the National Museum of Australia. Her PhD dissertation: Identity, belonging and cultural diversity in Australian Museums examined the ways that objects mediate relations between people of culturally diverse backgrounds in Australian society and history. This included an examination of the ways that museums, through their collections and exhibitions, are implicated in processes of inclusion and exclusion. Her interests include museology, transnationalism, migration, histories of place, colonisation, whiteness, human relationships with other species and material culture.
