Josiah Tualamali'i had the honour of presenting Lynne Pokoati our University of Canterbury 150 Year Anniversary book, 'A New History'. The book features a section on UC Pacific student leader, and UC master's graduate, Connor Pokoati who sadly passed. So great to see Connor highlighted in our 'A New History' book to continue his legacy and celebrate his many achievements.

Greek Mythology 101: Why Myth Matters 19/03/2024

Associate-Professor Patrick O’Sullivan (Classics) will be giving the following invited lecture at Selwyn Library (56 Tennyson Street, Rolleston) as part of the Autumn Lecture Series on Thur. March 28th at 6.30pm.
Greek Mythology 101: Why Myth Matters
Thu 28 Mar 6:30pm - 7:30pm


Even after 3000 years ancient Greek myths still have the capacity to captivate us. In the great epics of Homer, in the tragedies of ancient Athens, in art and architecture, we encounter the brilliant stories of figures we still know today and find all over the world - the gods and goddesses of Olympus, Amazon warriors, Heracles (a.k.a. Hercules), Oedipus, Helen of Troy, Achilles, Odysseus and more.
This talk looks at a few key myths the Greeks created to explain the world around them as they constructed meanings for themselves and addressed fantasies, phobias and taboos in ways that resonate powerfully with us now. Themes of this talk include war, violence, psychology, emotion, sexuality and desire. Click through to book.

Calling all teachers and community groups! The Teece is now taking bookings for 2024.

If you have a school or community group interested in the ancient world get in touch with our curators to secure your lesson.

Visits to the Teece Museum are led by one of the Curators, followed by an exploration of the gallery with the aid of activity sheets. The activities are designed to explore specific topics through a series of key objects from the Logie Collection and objects on loan from other institutions. You can either choose from one of our prepared lesson plans or should you wish for a more personalised tour that explores a specific theme.

Image: Students from Breens Intermediate exploring the gallery as part of their lesson on ancient heroes.
