Roundtable 1: Activating memory through tourism
Antilles. This conference provide a ‘first-step’ towards a much needed transdisciplinary dialogue in Dutch academia about the relevance of tourism studies in debates on slavery and colonial heritage and memory. Tourism is often the sustaining force that activates heritage sites. This conference contributes to increasing academic and societal knowledge by exploring tourism-related cultural productions centred around slavery heritage inspired by the need of cultivating stories that bring us together as opposed to feeding polarisation.
