Event details

Jillian Rickly is Professor of Tourism at University of Nottingham. She is the Series Editor for De Gruyter Studies in Tourism and an Associate Editor for Annals of Tourism Research. Her research is in two areas: authenticity/alienation and accessibility. She has spent much of her career examining the role of authenticity/alienation in tourism motivation and experience. This research has been situated in a variety of tourism contexts: heritage, nature, adventure, dark, among others. More recently, she has developed an additional research agenda related to accessibility and travel behaviour, specifically focused on assistance dogs owners. She has been working in collaboration with Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and Assistance Dogs UK to examine the role of this human-animal relationship in travel behaviour across the transport, travel and tourism sectors.
