Margaret Dalziel Lecture

The signature event in the English and Linguistics Programme calendar is the Dalziel Lecture, which was established in 1981 to honour Professor Margaret Dalziel. Dalziel was the first female Pro-Vice-Chancellor at our university, was Head of the English Department (and its first female professor), and taught and mentored some of Aotearoa's most prominent literary figures.

The 2023 Dalziel Lecture will be delivered on on Friday 25 August by Professor John Plotz, of Brandeis University:
