Lynette Russell

LynetteLynette Russell (Wotabaluk) is a Professor at Centre for Australian Indigenous Studies, Monash University. Lynette’s focus is on developing an anthropological approach to the story of the past. While her historical interests are far ranging – across the 18th to the 20th centuries, from Aboriginal people in the maritime industry, the Gunditjmara and Wurundjeri people of Victoria to the Smoki people in Prescott, Arizona – one of her major concerns is with the history of anthropology itself. One thing Lynette enjoys most about her position is her engagement with other disciplines – she has co-authored two books with Monash archaeologist Associate Professor Ian J McNiven – and she is eager to help facilitate interdisciplinary opportunities for her graduate students as well.Lynette has just begun an Australian Research Council Professorial fellowship, which will continue until 2016.
