Fatherhood: an Australian history 1919-2019

Fatherhood: an Australian history 1919-2019

This first comprehensive history of Australian fatherhood aims to transform understandings across the past century, specifically men’s experience of fatherhood and how fathers from diverse backgrounds, including migrant and Indigenous dads, have negotiated their role in changing circumstances.

This project will extend global understanding of the (positive and negative) contributions fathers make to family well-being, and will impact understandings of and approaches to Australian family health, policy, education and resilience.
