MemberIvan Mouraviev

The University of Auckland 2013-2017
Dilworth School

I graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Music (Hons) in musicology from The University of Auckland. My dissertation investigated how players relate to music in the digital game Dota 2 with respect to style, affect, and agency. I will continue studying music internationally, focusing in my research on music, media, and popular culture.

MemberWalescka Pino-Ojeda

I am an Associate Professor at The University of Auckland, New Zealand. My research is concerned with the ways in which the arts present and contest hegemonic power. In analysing Latin American social and political developments in the post authoritarian era (1980s-present), I have studied the role of literature, but am now primarily examining popular music, film and civic activism in the context of neoliberalism and social trauma. I am completing a volume on the role of culture in consolidating processes of re-democratization in post-authoritarian Chile.
