Brock University student to examine how festival frame rural identities, with focus on Potter festival.

A Brock University student is using Goderich as a case study on how festivals can frame a rural identity.

Jamie Anne Rowntree is a fourth year Recreation and Leisure Studies, who is looking for participants to help complete her undergraduate thesis.

Rowntree is looking for 4+ year Goderich residents 18 years of age or older to take part in the study.

The project will focus on the town's 2016 "Harry Potter and the Transfigured Town" event, which moved to Blyth for the two years following.

Rowntree hopes to speak with residents about their "opinions on this festival, how it has impacted their community and their sense of community."

You can find details on how to take part at by visiting the research study's home page.
