Nikita Vanderbyl

I’m a writer and researcher focusing on colonial and transnational art histories. My doctoral focus is Aboriginal cultural objects from Australia’s South East.

I am currently a PhD candidate at La Trobe University, where I’ve tutored in Aboriginal Australian history.

My expertise and interest also extend to Russian applied art of the nineteenth century.

My research has been published in Aboriginal History Journal and The La Trobe Journal. In 2018 I won the Community History Award for best peer reviewed journal article.

I have also worked in arts admin and project management in Brisbane and then Melbourne for ten years.
