Anna Clark is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow in Public History at the University of Technology Sydney. She has written three books: "The History Wars" (with Stuart Macintyre), "Teaching the Nation: Politics and Pedagogy in Australia", and "History's Children: History Wars in the Classroom", which interviewed 250 history teachers, students and curriculum officials from around Australia and Canada to explore history teaching in school. Her current project, "Every Now and Then: Navigating History in Australia", uses interviews with 100 people from around the country to consider their thoughts on history alongside public and political discussions about the past. Reflecting her love of fish and fishing, she has also recently been commissioned to write a history of fishing in Australia, which will be published in 2016.
