Let the countdown begin

Hello there. Thank you for taking an interest in the next Critical Tourism Studies conference! For us, Lynn Minnaert and Senija Causevic, it is a very special conference, even though it is the 5th in the series: whereas in the past we were mere delegates, this time we are helping to organise the event. We really want to get things right – so thank you for joining us at the start of this exciting journey!

For those of you who have attended a CTS conference before, the next line will sound familiar: CTS conferences are not like the others. Due to the relentless efforts of Irena Ateljevic, Nigel Morgan and Annette Pritchard, they have become a forum and meeting place for like-minded researchers all over the world. The first time I went to one, in Zadar, I was very much at the start of my academic career (I still am, in so many ways, but that besides!) and I was amazed at how open and welcoming people were. This is very much the atmosphere we would like to create once again in 2013.

After meetings with Nigel and Annette, and with Irena, we are now in a position to share some of our plans with you on this website. Via this blog we would like to keep you posted on how the preparations are progressing, and introduce you to some of the wonderful people and organisations we will be working with. So come and have a look every now and then, and get in touch with us if you like – you’re very welcome on these pages, and of course we would love to see you in Sarajevo next year!

    Hi Senija and Lynn
    It is great to see the conference under development and all the exciting things you are planning. I am particularly pleased with the conference philosophy and social commitments. It is great to be associated with a conference that wants to be embedded in the hosting community and return multiple benefits to them.
    Well done.
