Johanna's research interests are in the area of Australian colonial and Indigenous histories, including both Indigenous rights and settler colonial engagement with Indigenous peoples. She is currently completing a manuscript on Indigenous activism in Redfern in the 1970s, exploring the ways in which the local Aboriginal organisations pursued self-determination.
