Join prize-winning author Dr Catherine Bishop and hear about her research for her latest book Women Mean Business: Colonial Businesswomen in New Zealand.

In this talk Catherine Bishop, author of Women Mean Business: Colonial businesswomen in New Zealand (Otago University Press), explores the stories of some of New Zealand’s colonial entrepreneurs – the successful and the outright failures, the heart-warming and the tragic, the everyday and the scandalous.

Born and raised in Whanganui, Dr Catherine Bishop is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Macquarie University in Sydney. Her first book Minding Her Own Business: Colonial Businesswomen in Sydney (NewSouth Publishing, 2015) won the prestigious 2016 Ashurst Business Literature Prize. This is her second book.
