FROM OVERTOURISM TO OVERTOURISM
Sustainable scenarios in post-pandemic times
Valeria Pecorelli, PhD, is assistant professor in Geography at the Faculty of Art and Tourism of IULM University in Milan (Italy), where she lectures in “Creativity and design of tourism policies and services” on the Master’s Degree course in Hospitality and Tourism Management. Her research interests mainly concern the theories and methods of cultural geography and critical geographies of tourism.
Reinventing the “tourism of tomorrow” and going beyond tourism “as we know it” is going to require shared critical academic reflections conveying actions and practices that stimulate greater sustainability and responsibility, both in the field when we collect data and in the classroom when we lecture. This volume draws together the scientific efforts of several geographers who continued to pursue research in the field of tourism while the planet was at a standstill and global tourism suspended for over a year. It presents a diverse selection of case studies and offers insightful observations with regard to the unknown future trajectories of tourism in post-COVID times.
