Detailed Description

Donna Chambers is Professor of Tourism within the Faculty of Business, Law & Tourism. Her research focuses on how people, places and pedagogies are represented in and through tourism. She is also interested in the use of innovative methods in tourism research including the use of visuals. 

In this lecture Professor Chambers draws on critical perspectives, including postcolonial and decolonial theory, to interrogate a range of representations from gay travel in Jamaica, to ‘Third World’ women in Spare Rib magazine.  In so doing she demonstrates that tourism is not simply an apolitical, ludic phenomenon, but rather has immense power to privilege certain discourses and practices while denying legitimacy to others.
