Please join us to engage with Dr. Bryan Grimwood (Department of Recreation & Leisure Studies) as he presents "Disrupting Nature and Responsibility for Just and Sustainable Arctic Tourism".
Perceptions and representations of Arctic tourism that reify pristine nature tend to obscure contemporary livelihoods of indigenous inhabitants. Drawing on case study research of the Thelon River in (sub) Arctic Canada, this presentation calls into question norms associated with responsibility in nature-based tourism. In doing so, it seeks to open more equitable and culturally sensitive spaces within tourism's discursive arena.
