"Critical digital tourism research: Social media as a fieldwork site"

Muchazondida Mkono,
PhD, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, the University of Queensland, Australia

All other students as well as researchers are welcome to join the lecture!

Without a doubt, Mucha Mkono will be one of the future stars of tourism research and, already now, her list of publications is outstanding. In her recent research, Mucha has addressed, for instance, the theme of “reflexive tourist” in the context of slum tourism and currently she examines the ethics of trophy hunting, inspired by the social media outrage over the shooting of Cecil the Lion in her home country, Zimbabwe.
