Dr Dan Tout

Dr Dan Tout is a lecturer in history and sociology at Federation University and an Arena Publications Editor. Dan is an early-career researcher with wide-ranging, interdisciplinary interests and expertise centred around the history and contemporary shape of relations between settlers and Indigenous peoples, in Australia and around the world. His current research is focused in particular on settler-colonial nationalism and its impacts on and implications for First Nations peoples and politics. In 2023, Dan was an inaugural Visiting Fellow with the Australian Centre at the University of Melbourne. His Fellowship project was focused on developing a fuller theorisation of settler nationalism, with the aim of elaborating the nature and political implications of settler nationalism in contemporary so-called ‘Australia’, and around the settler-colonial world.
