Oral Presentation
Tom SELWYN , University of London, United Kingdom
The first half of this keynote considers how tourism in the global south is framed by colonial and neo-colonial ideas, values, and capital. The second half looks at, and listens to, the ‘silent voices’ examined in the EC’s MED VOICES project and the subsequent Contested Spaces volume (edited by Kousis, Selwyn, and Clark) as examples of post-colonial resistance to the above. A conclusion relates the two halves together.
