Fantastic news to be once again presenting and for the first time hosting two sessions at this year’s conference. Huge thanks to Geographies of Leisure and Tourism Research Group for their sponsorship.
The first session is a collaboration with Dr Maggie Miller from Swansea University entitled: Redesigning the room: Troubling geographies of adventure tourism. This session includes an international line-up of scholars tackling female mountaineering in Mexico, gender and adventure sport in the Sahara Marathon, inequality and female participation in adventure sports in the UK and women and historical accounts of mountaineering.
The second is in collaboration with Assistant Professor Claudia Eger from Copenhagen Business School entitled: Geographies of Inequality and Hope: Towards Sustainable Tourism Futures, in which I will co-present a paper with Dr B. Paddison entitled: Governance and sustainable engagement: Building equality within public and private tourism spaces. This session also has an international line-up of scholars tackling topics such as volunteer tourism, diversity and heritage.
