Overview: The Academy’s Trendall Lecture was made possible through a bequest made by Professor A.D. (Dale) Trendall AC CMG FAHA (1909–95), a Foundation Fellow of the Academy. He envisaged the lecture series as ‘an annual lecture or lectures by a scholar on some theme associated with classical studies’.

New Zealand artist Marian Maguire, best known for images which fuse ancient Greek vase painting with New Zealand colonial history, will deliver the 22nd Trendall Lecture — Straying from Myth.

The lecture will occur at the Australasian Society for Classical Studies conference at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand, from 28 – 31 January, 2020.
