Joan Tumblety

Associate Professor of French History, University of Southampton
I am a historian of modern France, specialising in the entwined cultural, gender and political histories of the twentieth century. Although I began my career focusing on the cultural and gender politics of the far right, my current research draws on perspectives from the history of health and medicine to explore natural health cures and the emergence of self-help across the early to mid-twentieth century period.

I first explored the interrelation of gender and politics in my doctoral research on fascist writers during the Occupation of France, 1940-1944. I was struck by how systematically parts of the collaborationist press filtered and refined their political and historical views through notions of masculinity and femininity. I expanded this engagement with masculinity by exploring the imagined connection between national decline and male physical failure in a monograph about the world of French physical culture, 1918-1945. My doctoral studies also nurtured a scholarly interest in the instrumentalization of memory, and this resulted in the publication of an edited collection for Routledge in 2013.

Joanna Mack

Joanna Mack is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the School of Policy Studies at the University of Bristol and a Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Open University. She was part of the successful bid team and the Open University's lead for the ESRC-funded, inter-university Poverty and Social Exclusion research project, which ran from 2010 to 2015 and was the largest ever research project in the UK into poverty. In 2012, she set up the Poverty and Social Exclusion website - www.poverty.ac.uk - which has become an important source of information on poverty and social exclusion in the UK and is now extensively used by researchers, educators, students and the general public. She is co-author (with Stewart Lansley) of 'Breadline Britain - the rise of mass poverty' (Onewold, 2015) which draws on thirty years of research in this field.

Until January 2016, she was Head of Video and Audio for the university, overseeing the production of teaching materials. She worked, in particular, on a wide range of new modules for the social science faculty covering social policy, psychology, economics, politics and the environment.

After graduating from Cambridge University, she worked on New Society magazine before moving into broadcast television where she had a long and successful career as a producer/director of factual programmes working ofr first London Weekend Television and then running her own production company, Domino Films. During this period, her films and documentaries won many prestigious awards, including from BAFTA, Royal Television Society, British Film Institute, and British Universities Film and Video Council, and, internationally, from New York International Film and Television Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, San Francisco Festival and the CableAce Awards of North America.

She produced and directed the first Breadline Britain series in 1983 and was the series editor for the second series in the 1990s, both broadcast on the ITV network. For the 1983 series she set up the pioneering research survey behind the series which devised a new approach for measuring poverty based on the public's perceptions of necessities. This methodolog,y which she set out in 'Poor Britain' (1985), has been used by researchers and governments in the UK, the European Union and many other countries from Japan to South Africa.

She also produced and directed Lost Children of the Empire, a ground breaking documentary uncovering the story of child migration from the UK under which children as young a three were shipped to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the former Southern Rhodesia from the turn of the 20th century up until as the late 1960s. The film's broadcast in the UK and Australia, and the subsequent book of the same name, helped secure the foundation of the Child Migrants Trust and their work supporting families separated by these practices. Two decades later it led to official apologies from the Australian and UK governments.

She has written extensively about poverty and inequality, including for The Guardian, The Scotsman and Tribune. She has regularly been interviewed for radio about her work and has presented at a number of festivals including The South Bank Centre and the Edinburgh Book Festival.

Her books include:

Poor Britain (with Stewart Lansley), George Allen & Unwin, 1983.

London at War (with Steve Humphries), Sidgwick & Jackson, 1985.

Joanna Mendelssohn

Honorary (Senior Fellow) School of Culture and Communication University of Melbourne. Editor in Chief, Design and Art of Australia Online, The University of Melbourne
Joanna Mendelssohn studied under Bernard Smith as one of the first cohort of honours graduates in Fine Arts at the University of Sydney. She then worked at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, under Daniel Thomas and Tony Tuckson. After some years of working as a curator and then art critic, she joined UNSW where she became the coordinator of the Master of Art Administration, at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW where she also taught Australian art history and writing. On her retirement she was appointed an honorary associate professor.

Her first book was the seminal study on Sydney Long (1979). This was followed by a series of studies on Lionel Lindsay. The research for her book, Lionel Lindsay: an artist and his family (Chatto & Windus, London 1988) was supported by a Literature Board Fellowship. She later revisited the ways in which the mythology of the Lindsay family had been created in her PhD thesis at the University of Sydney, This was reworked and published as Letters & Liars: Norman Lindsay and the Lindsay family (Angus & Robertson 1996). She wrote the catalogue for the 1990 Yellow House exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and was curator for the touring exhibition Larter Family Values (Casula 2006) and Lionel's Place ( Maitland 2017).

Her most recent book, co-authored with Catherine De Lorenzo, Alison Inglis and Catherine Speck, is Australian Art Exhibitions: Opening our eyes, (T&H 2018). This project is the culmination of an ARC Linkage Project with UNSW, University of Melbourne and University of Adelaide in partnership with the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of South Australia and Museums Australia.

In 2003 Mendelssohn was instrumental in organising the national collaboration of universities and cultural institutions that ensured the future of Joan Kerr's research for The Dictionary of Australian Artists by creating the Dictionary of Australian Artists Online, which has now evolved into Design and Art of Australia Online (aka DAAO). The DAAO is one of the data bases collaborating with the University of Melbourne to create the Australian Cultural Data Engine for Research, Industry and Government.
