Barbara Gold, the Edward North Professor of Classics, gave six lectures at four universities in New Zealand --  the University of Auckland, Victoria University in Wellington, University of Canterbury in Christchurch, and Otago University in Dunedin -- in September and October. 

The lectures were on two topics: "The Martyr Perpetua: Athlete of God," delivered at seminars for faculty and post-graduate students, and "Inhuman She-wolves and Unhelpful Mothers in Roman Poetry: A Consideration of Roman Mothers and Some Remarks on their Colonial American Counterparts," delivered to Classical Associations around New Zealand. These are groups of local non-academics or non-classicists who are interested in the classical world. 

The talk on Perpetua is part of a book she is writing for Oxford University Press while she is on leave.
