Avan Judd Stallard

Avan Judd Stallard earned a PhD in history from the University of Queensland in 2011. As a historian he is concerned with both the messy detail of what happened in the past and how historians “do” history. He sees great benefit in big picture history and the synthesis of existing corpuses of knowledge. Stallard’s interests in diverse fields (e.g., philosophy, psychology, biological sciences, philology) is underpinned by an abiding interest in method and epistemology – how we get to knowledge and what we purport to do with it. He is a proponent of greater consilience between the sciences and humanities.

When not moonlighting as a historian, Stallard is a writer of both fiction and non-fiction. He also works as an editor. He lives with his wife and dog, Javier.
