Biography/ BackgroundTom Sheridan received his Ph D from the Australian National University. He is a Fellow of the Academy of the Humanities in Australia. In 2003 he was awarded a Centenary Medal by the Australian Government under the citation: "For Service to Australian Society and the Humanities in the Study of Industrial Relations"
Research InterestsDr Sheridan's main research has concentrated on various aspects of mid-20th Century Australian industrial relations. The main focus has been on the role and varying tactics of the many arms of the state as well as on the often contrasting 'industrial culture' of management and workgroups operating in any particular sector. His major research project has aimed at producing a three-volume study of industrial relations in the period 1945-1970. The second volume, on the turbulent waterfront, has recently been completed. Earlier publications include Mindful Militants (Cambridge University Press) and Division of Labour (Oxford University Press).
