02 Apr Post-tourism, the end of tourism as we know it | Marysia Złonkiewicz
Are you aware that you are a subject to the wide range of processes (psychological, commercial and ideological) when travelling? For the post-tourist the inhabitants of other countries are trading partners — not a service or part of the landscape. Post-tourism has a crucial impact on the form of tourism.
Marysia Złonkiewicz is the cultural expert at Balkan studies, tourism theorist and a world traveler. Together with Paweł Cywiński she has created the innovative post-turysta.pl project consociating the leading Polish tourism researchers. Their aim is to explain the variety of mechanisms to which all the tourists travelling to far-flung places are exposed. In her scientific work, Marysia deals with the problems of contemporary cross-cultural relations, stereotyping theory in tourism, and transformations of the Bosnian Islam. She lived and visited Southeast Asia, the Horn of Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans.
