Social mobility goes on holiday

The crossing point of social and physical mobility in tourism enacts a variety of inequalities as well as redistributive and generative paradoxes that may be worsened or even challenged by disruptive events and that directly impact our collective ability to move or not across the globe. The ATLAS’ 3rd International Seminar of Space, Place and Mobilities in Tourism SIG will be held on May 27th-28 2021 with the aim to bring together interdisciplinary perspectives on how tourist spaces are (in the present) and were (in the past) entangled with both exclusionary and inclusionary dynamics, resulting in both social conflicts and empowerment.

The seminar will host 25 participants and is supported by the People Node within the Mobility&Humanities excellence project at DiSSGeA in cooperation with the Association for Tourism and Leisure Education and Research.

Keynote speakers: Stroma Cole (University of Westminster, Design, Creative and Digital Industries College, UK), Diane P. Koenker (University College London, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, UK), Marco d’Eramo (social theorist and journalist, author of The World in a Selfie, Verso, 2021)

International Scientific Committee: Patrizia Battilani (University of Bologna, Italy), Benedetta Castiglioni (University of Padova, Italy), Szilvia Gyimothy (Copenhagen Business School, Denmark), Dimitri Ioannides (Mid-Sweden University, Sweden), Paola Minoia (University of Turin, Italy).
