University of Newcastle Archivist Gionni Di Gravio discusses the recent occasion of the unveiling of the portrait of the late Emeritus Professor of Classics Godfrey Tanner in the GT Bar of the Union.
The portrait of Godfrey is by esteemed Australian artist Michael Legge-Wilkinson, who painted the piece in 1993 when he was a student studying at the University of Newcastle.
Today’s broadcast explores Professor Tanner’s virtual afterlife on You Tube through the Godfrey Tanner Society (http://godfreytanner.wordpress.com/) and an exciting new project of the Humanities Research Institute called ‘Radical Newcastle’ (http://radicalnewcastle.wordpress.com/).
