Angela’s research focuses on the intersections between gender, race and sexuality in colonial history, with a specific focus on the connections between race and intimacy within and across colonial cultures.

Between 2010-2012 she was co-investigator, with Professor Judy Bennett, on an archival and oral history-based research project concerned with exploring the fate of children born of American servicemen and indigenous women in the South Pacific Command during World War II. This project has resulted in a book, a website, and a documentary film.
