In this paper we want to focus on two main aspects of our experience in the United States. The teaching of Australian (and New Zealand) subject material in an exclusive US institution, and the crossover between teacher and person in the practice of this teaching. In particular we wish to highlight the challenges and rewards of teaching Australian studies outside of Australia, and explore the experiences of less senior academic staff who undertake this task.
