Jock Phillips is among New Zealand’s most eminent historians. He has written extensively on New Zealand’s social history. A Man’s Country? The Image of the Pakeha Male – A History, first published by Penguin in 1987 and reprinted in 1996, remains a defining text on masculinity in New Zealand. In addition to his many publications, Jock has made a particularly significant contribution to Public History in New Zealand.

He founded the Stout Centre for New Zealand Studies at Victoria University and served as Chief Historian for the Ministry of Culture and Heritage. He also served as Senior Editor for Te Ara – The online Encyclopedia of New Zealand, which by 2017 was being accessed 500,000 times per month. In 2011 Jock received the Pou Aronui Award from the Royal Society of New Zealand in recognition of his contribution to the Humanities.

Jock’s lecture will reflect on the way in which growing up in Manawatū/Whanganui shaped his father’s perception of history.
