Elizabeth Morrison

Elizabeth Morrison is a historian of nineteenth-century Australian print culture. The political role of the newspaper press is a major theme of her Engines of Influence (2005), a study of Victoria’s country newspapers in the colonial period. She has researched and written extensively about the cultural role of the nineteenth-century Australian press as publisher of new fiction through newspaper serialisation. Locating significant original novels by noted author Ada Cambridge serialised in the Melbourne Age during 1888 and 1889, she edited them for re-publication in the Colonial Texts Series (A Woman’s Friendship, 1988 and A Black Sheep, 2004). She has a history PhD from Monash University, where she was a lecturer in librarianship and a research fellow in Australian studies. She now lives in Canberra.
