Otago University at 150

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 11:05 am on 16 January 2019

Now though we're heading south to New Zealand's oldest university! This year the University of Otago celebrates its 150th anniversary, having been founded back in 1869.

Alison Clarke is an author and historian who's written a history of the university: it's called Otago: 150 Years of New Zealand's first University and it's published, of course, by the Otago University Press. Alison Clarke joins us now from the Dunedin studio.
