CHE Queensland


The University of Queensland Node of CHE is led by Chief Investigator Professor Peter Holbrook, a scholar of Shakespeare and English Renaissance literature. UQ CHE’s research team includes ARC postdoctoral fellows: Dr Spencer Jackson specializes in long eighteenth-century British literature and twentieth-century French philosophy. Dr Kenneth Chong is a medievalist, who focuses on intellectual history and literature. Dr Diana G. Barnes conducts research on early modern women’s manuscript letters.

Former postdoctoral fellows Dr Ross Knecht, a specialist in sixteenth-century English literature, and Dr Brandon Chua, who focuses on the literature and politics of seventeenth-century Britain, continue to be involved with the centre as honorary researchers.

Research into the history of emotions is also carried out by a team of Associate Investigators working in such fields as Art History, Music, Literature, and History.

CHE Queensland would like to acknowledge and pay respects to the the Turrbal People, who are the traditional custodians of the land upon which we work.
