Rowan Light Podcast
“As one of our last truly public rituals, Anzac Day claims a sacred space in New Zealand’s national attention.”
This month on the podcast we are joined by our most recent addition to the research team: Dr Rowan Light. Rowan and Jeremy chat from their respective lockdown bubbles, discussing the turbulent history of New Zealand’s ANZAC day commemorations. Starting from the Flint & Steel article Rowan wrote in 2018, they explore the patriotism of the day, and times in history where protests have disrupted commemorations and shifted our national conversation.
