Douglas Wilkie

 

Douglas Wilkie has a PhD from the University of Melbourne in which he investigated the three years preceding the great Victorian gold rushes of 1851. This produced a micro-history that revealed long-forgotten influences upon the advent of the 1851 gold "discoveries"., and challenged a number of conventional views of the origins of the Australian gold rushes.

A previous MA from Monash University investigated the lives of two non-conventional Van Diemen's Land convicts who subsequently came to Port Phillip. An earlier MEd, also from Monash University investigated the provision of education in central Victoria from the time of first settlement in 1836, through the gold rush period, to the advent of major educational reforms in 1862.
