Cybèle Locke

A scrupulous, adventurous writer, Cybèle Locke foregrounds twentieth-century working-class narratives in her research. Her first book, Workers in the Margins: Union Radicals in Post-War New Zealand, drew on case studies of freezing workers' clerical workers' and unemployed workers' unions to explore how women, Māori and Pasifika workers transformed union cultures. A Pākehā historian, Cybèle Locke is a senior lecturer in the History Programme at Victoria University of Wellington, a union delegate, and active in the living wage movement.
