As the 2017 Lilburn Research Fellow I investigated the Jazz Age in New Zealand (1917-1935), and how jazz came to New Zealand. I was able to explore how jazz was defined locally (as music, dance, fashion, and its emotional qualities), what jazz meant to New Zealanders in the Jazz Age, and I discovered just how incredibly vibrant the jazz scene and wider entertainment industry was in New Zealand during this period. - Dr Aleisha Ward
