About the Author

Jared Mackley-Crump teaches at the Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand.


This book is located within established theoretical debates on authenticity, tradition, cultural change, place, and identity. Beyond these key themes, the book is also situated within Pacific Studies and is pertinent to the research of diasporic communities in Pacific Rim cities. I commend Mackley-Crump for his significant contribution to this field by linking together critical academic works by Pasifika researchers (dispersed in various fields like education, social sciences, and anthropology, to name a few) and to frame a discussion of diasporic Pacific peoples in AO, NZ.--Charmaine 'Ilaiu Talei, University of Queensland "Pacific Affairs, 90:1 (March 2017)"
The Pacific Festivals of Aotearoa New Zealand contributes to the literature on Pacific Island communities in New Zealand and to the study of cultural festivals. One of its strengths is its viewpoint from 'inside' festivals scenes: perspectives on events from those involved in their development, organisation and participation. . . . this book offers a new and persuasive case study of the cultural flow of Pacific experiences within New Zealand. Central to the text is a story of cultural celebration, and as a contribution to a greater appreciation of Pacific Island communities this book brings new reflection on the value of festivals and festival experiences.-- "Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology"
. . . this study offers a persuasive argument for an understanding of how Pacific festivals reflect the way in which the Pacific diaspora is situated, imagined, and has evolved in New Zealand. . . . this book is an insightful addition to the bodies of research on Pacific diaspora and Pacific festivals, and it deserves a wide readership.-- "People and Culture in Oceania"
