She specialises in the history of rural Victoria, with a particular interest in contemporary issues of sustainability, in particular, the significant contribution of women in agriculture and rural communities. Much of her work has been focused on bridging the gaps between city and country, consumers and producers.

Liza is the lead curator in the national Invisible Farmer project - the largest ever study of Australian women on the land. This project is a creative partnership between rural communities, academics, government and cultural organisations. It aims to create new histories of rural Australia, and showcase the diverse, innovative and vital contribution of women to agriculture & rural Australia.
