Biography:

Jared is an  emerging researcher with a research focus (to date) on processes of  festivalization and Pacific festivals in Aotearoa New Zealand; he is also a  specialist in ethnomusicology (the study of how and why people make music),  ethnography and qualitative methodologies.   His broader research interests address how music and events interact  with societies and influence ideas of community, identity, space and space.  New research underway is investigating aspects of politicisation and commercialisation at Auckland's Pride festival, as well  as commercial music festivals and food festivals in New Zealand.
