David Walker

David Walker is a distinguished cultural historian whose eyesight deteriorated suddenly at the end of 2004 as the result of macular degeneration. His blindness caused him to reconsider his own relation to the past, and the history of his family, which, like most families, left very few records. A native of South Australia, Walker's memoir is aptly entitled Not Dark Yet. Walker is Professor of Australian Studies at Deakin University and Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and the Australian Academy of the Humanities. His books include Dream and Disillusion: The Search for Australian Cultural Identity, and Anxious Nation: Australia and the Rise of Asia.
