Kellee Caton, Professor, Thompson Rivers University (

Abstract:  The presentation is a moral-epistemic exploration in the context of tourism and nature, which draws insights from the Professor Caton’s previous research on the moral gaze in tourism and from her new research area of "too late tourism". This new focus draws on the work of Donna Haraway and other New Materialists, as well as philosophies and geographies of apocalypticism to explore how sensory experiences of sites of environmental destruction can make us understand loss and responsibility in more helpful ways.

Discussants: Dominic Lapointe (Professor, Département d'études urbaines et touristiques, University of Quebec, Montreal, Canada), Vassilios Ziakas (Associate Professor in Sport & Event Management), Ilia Alvarado-Sizzo (Associate Researcher, Institute of Geography, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México), Manuel Ángel Santana Turégano, (Professor, Departamento de Sociología y Antropología, Universidad de La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain), Jennie Germann Molz (Professor of Sociology, Sociology & Anthropology, College of the Holy Cross, Massachusetts, US).
