Orientation Interview – Dr Nathan Wise (HINQ120)

Ben and Kim were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to sit down and talk with Dr Nathan Wise, an Associate Professor in the public and applied history sector at UNE.

Dr Wise’s primary field includes historical theory and practice, and he is the Unit Coordinator of HINQ100 – What is History? This unit deals with the foundations of history in the ancient world and the development of medieval and early modern concepts of history. It is a fascinating fundamental unit and more information can be found here.

This interview is part of a series of Orientation Interviews, designed to make first-year students feel more at ease and reassured about what they can expect at UNE. Starting out at University can be highly overwhelming and we want to make sure that we do everything we can to ensure that students feel as comfortable as possible.

Should any students have any questions or concerns about starting university and studying this unit, Dr Wise can be contacted via email at or by phone on 02 6773 2810. More information about his academic history can be found here.
