To mark 150 years of the University of Canterbury, a richly illustrated history of the institution is being published. This panel discussion promises a fascinating insight into the process of writing A New History: The University of Canterbury 1873–2023, which is more critical and honest than the laudatory volume one might expect. The book’s editor, Dr Chris Jones, will be in discussion with principal author Dr John Wilson, as well as other contributors including the University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Cheryl de la Rey and Pou Whakarae Professor Te Maire Tau (Ngāi Tahu), plus Christchurch history writer Margaret Lovell-Smith.
