Jenny Coates BA (Hons) Consultant Historian

I am a consultant historian with extensive experience in archival research, contextual analysis, and literature searching and review.  I have published or contributed to histories of my local area, and written several entries for the Encyclopedia of Melbourne (2005).  I have 24 years' experience in family, biographical and local history research.

I have a First-class Honours degree in history from the Monash University (Melbourne), with my thesis supervised by Professor Graeme Davison and Dr Seamus O’Hanlon.  I am completing a PhD on the unemployed in Melbourne during the depression of the 1890s, supervised by Dr O’Hanlon and Professor Marian Quartly.
