Fiona Mckergow


I have a background in collaborative history – Women Together (1993, 2018); Dictionary of New Zealand Biography (1996, 1998); Looking Flash (2007); Te Hao Nui (2011) – and museum curatorship. In 2020, I was granted an Award in History to prepare my doctoral thesis on colonial textile culture in 19th century Aotearoa New Zealand for publication. I am an editor of Phanzine and the New Zealand Journal of Public History.
