  1. Thank you for you very insightful talks you gave in UCC this week. I really enjoyed them. I look forward to reading the documents on your site. I know at they will be a great help in clarifying some confusion I am having at present, as I am completing my MA in Anthropology this year.

    If you have the time, are there any other books that you might recommend to me on ethnographically or anthropological Tourism (especially in relation to Food and Consumerism).

    • Glad you found the talk useful Olga. I’m not sure I can help you much re the ethnography of tourism, it’s not my field. But the work of Karen O’Reilly on ethnography may be of use regarding this. You could also contact her, to see whether she could help:
      Best wishes, Martyn
