Biography

Biography

Dr Sally Percival Wood is an Australia-Asia historian and Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Her postdoctoral project is the study of the 40th Anniversary of Australia-ASEAN Dialogue Partnership. This represents an extension of her doctoral research on the Bandung Conference as it traces the post-war foreign policies of decolonising Asia and Australia and how these transitions continue to shape Australia's relations with Asia. Sally also worked with Asialink at The University of Melbourne (2010-12) where she managed the Track Two Diplomacy program, and in 2014 gave public lectures in Vietnam, Cambodia and Brunei and Darussalam on the Australia-ASEAN Dialogue Partnership for the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade.


Also continuing her doctoral research, Sally is currently writing a history of Afro-Asian solidarity movements from 1900 to 1955. This project looks at the various Pan-African and Pan-Asian, and Afro-Asian, conferences in the first half of the twentieth century, the radial media generated by these movements, and how they interacted with anti-imperialism activists in Britain, Europe and the United States.
