Nadia Rhook is a white settler historian, educator, and poet. She lectures and researches Indigenous, Asian, and Australian history at the University of Western Australia, on Whadjuk Noongar land. Her research is much inspired by her background in ESL teaching, and in 2016 she curated the City of Melbourne heritage-turned online exhibition 'Moving Tongues: language and migration in 1890s Melbourne'. She designed the public history walking tour 'Migration Melbourne' delivered for a range of festivals and events, including the 2017 Melbourne Writer's Festival. Her research focuses on Asian migration and colonialism in the Australia-Asia-Pacific region. Her wide range of connected interests include histories of speech, migration, and law, race and emotion, medicine and sovereignty.
Nadia co-convenes the Perth branch of the Asian Australian Studies Research Network, and is a committee member of the Dragon Tails Chinese-Australasian History and Heritage Association. She also co-convenes the UWA Humanities ECR network.
