Keith is currently President of the Australian and New Zealand History of Education Society and President of the International Australian Studies Association. In December 2004 he convened an ANZHES Conference with the theme Social Change, Education and History at QUT’s Carseldine campus. The Centre for Social Change Research, QUT, sponsored this 4-day event. Four years later, he was again Conference Convenor – this time for an InASA Conference that was held at QUT’s Gardens Point campus. The theme was New Voices, New Visions – Challenging Australian Identities.  The joint editorship of a special issue of the Journal of  Australian Studies and a book titled  New Voices, New Visions – Challenging Australian Identities has arisen from the papers presented at this conference.

As Keith’s publications and his post-graduate supervision indicate, his interests lie in the History of Education in Australia and in Australian History. He also has an interest in British and European History. Much of his research is located in two quite separate decades: the 1850s and the 1960s.
