Daniel Elias

In 2022 Daniel Elias is researching the history of the Western Australian waterfront as his doctoral project.

Fremantle Herald 30 July 2022:
Daniel A. Elias is studying at UWA and looking at the issue of how maritime workers, shipping companies and state institutions navigated the tensions between each other and across the globe. “The history will explore four periods over a 100-year span,” Mr Elias said. “Starting with the work stoppage of 1899, moving to the waterfront tensions during the post-WWI era, followed by the Cold War era and the advent of containerisation, and finishing with the waterfront confrontations of 1998.”
