National Library Programme of Events, 2017

The National Library of New Zealand – Te Puna Matauranga o Aotearoa – will be opening its 2017 programme of events with a curatorial summer lecture series. These four lectures will be held on successive Wednesdays, and will showcase the work of Alexander Turnbull Library curators. First up: Paul Diamond,  on Maori in editorial cartoons, from the 1930s to 1990s. You can hear Paul, for free, on Wednesday 1 February, starting at 5:30pm, in Te Ahumairangi (ground floor, National Library, corner of Molesworth and Aitken Streets). He’ll be the guy talking about changes over time in editorial cartoon depictions of Maori and Maori culture. Enjoy!
