In conjunction with its annual conference, ATLAS is pleased to announce the pre-conference seminar for doctoral students in tourism and related field. This year, we offer PhD scholars the chance to be part of a one-day seminar on tourism research methods based on the newly published edited book Tourism Methodologies - New Perspectives, Practices and Procedures. Present will be two of the editors to discuss the importance of methodological strength and reflexivity when conducting research and to present some of the qualitative and quantitative methods, which they have succeeded with in their own research in tourism.
After the senior presentations, the participants will be given the chance to present and receive feedback on the methodological part of their PhD research project. Also, time will be allocated for informal talks and the exchange of experiences about the ‘everyday life’, challenges and expectations as a PhD scholar.
The seminar provides doctoral students in tourism and related fields with an exciting opportunity to discuss their dissertation research with other doctoral students and senior academics in this field. Hence, the seminar offers a unique opportunity to meet colleagues, share experiences and ideas, and network with students and faculty from different countries and university systems. All topics and methodological approaches within the broad field of tourism, hospitality and leisure will be considered.
