Jenner Contrasts Ancient Athens and Sparta

T & J

Australian volunteer Ricky Vijay Kuruppu chats with Ted Jenner after Jenner's evening lecture.

In Lolo Masi Hall on 15 September, Kiwi classicist Ted Jenner graphically described the militarisation of Sparta in a lecture that compared the ruthless city-state with more moderate Athens.

Currently based in Auckland, Jenner holds Master's degrees in Greek and Latin from the University of Otago, and has taught classical language and history at the University of Malawi in southeast Africa.
