Cybèle Locke is a a senior lecturer in history. She identifies as a twentieth-century New Zealand social, cultural and labour historian. In her first book, Workers in the Margins: Union Radicals in Post-war New Zealand, she explored the roles women, Māori, Pasifika and unemployed workers played in working-class organisations and protest. Oral history enabled the recovery of people's experiences who have been marginal to the historical record. She has almost completed a book-length biography of Auckland communist and trade union leader Bill Andersen (1924-2005). Andersen's life is a window through which to examine the intersection between communism, trade unionism and social movements, from the 1930s to the early twenty-first century. Post-1972 New Zealand campaigns to eradicate the gender wage gap and the organisation of office workers in the United States are the subjects of her next research projects.
She was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Gender and Women's Studies at Connecticut College.
