A cartoon history of religion in NZ presented by Dr Mike Grimshaw.

This illustrated lecture is the first step in compiling a cartoon history of religion in New Zealand. The cartoons, ranging from the 1860s to the present day, are a rich and unmined source of historical and cultural opinion, not only on religion but also on New Zealand society and culture, its prejudices, assumptions and beliefs – or lack of them.

Presented as a part of the University of Canterbury's Platform Arts Festival 2010, a dynamic 11 day extravaganza of art, lectures, theatre, music and film.
