According to Professor Katie Pickles, the Canterbury earthquakes "shunted Christchurch society off its colonial tracks".

She says that the physical ruptures of the earth forced an abrupt rupture with the past, and requires us to look at a future of unexpected possibilities.

Professor Pickles talks with Wallace Chapman about her personal relationship with the history of Christchurch – a city building the future with lessons from the past:

Katie Pickles is Professor and Head of History at the University of Canterbury and she discusses her new book Christchurch Ruptures.
