About Dr Robert J Smith

Dr Robert James Smith DipTeach(SecEngHist)(NRCAE), BA(UNE), GradDipHum, MLitt(UNE), MA(Hons), PhD (UNE), MACE
My research is focussed on cultural tradition and with an Australian or regional focus. Its approaches come from the fields of language, literature and history. Its foundations were in nearly 20 years' experience of teaching school students. Output has ranged from full-length local histories (Byron Bay and Lismore), to extensive editing (Australian Folklore), to regular conference presentations. Specific topics currently range from roadside memorials, and the Australian meat pie, to regional archival film. I was Scholar-in-Residence at the National Film and Sound Archive in 2011. For supervision of higher degrees, I look specifically to cultural tradition or to children's literature, but do consider a wide range of topics from Education and elsewhere—where a language or historical approach may be useful.
