Joy Wallace

Joy Wallace teaches and researches in the Faculty of Arts and Education at Charles Sturt University, Bathurst.  She was Associate Dean Learning and Teaching for seven years and a member of an OLT-funded project on designing first year Humanities and Social Sciences curricula in the context of discipline threshold standards.  Joy’s longstanding interest in Hazel Smith’s work, dating from their time as colleagues at the University of New South Wales, has produced several articles.  Her other current research, with John O’Carroll, is on the ‘engaged’ writing of Australian women writers of the 1940s and 1950s, particularly Judith Wright and Eleanor Dark.
