On December 1st, I’ll be on a panel discussion about the upcoming book “Tourism and Gentrification in Contemporary Metropolises. International Perspectives”. The book was edited by Maria Gravari-Barbas (University Paris 1) & Sandra Guinand (University of Vienna). I’m looking forward to discussing the book together with the editors and Bas van Heur (Vrije Universiteit Brussels). I’m particularly excited as the topic of the book relates to our ongoing research on Airbnb and gentrification in Vienna. I’ll try to add some thoughts on Vienna to the debate and reflect how the main arguments of the book would relate to the Vienna case (it is not part of the studied cases). Below is the official invitation text:
the second session within our UNIVIE International Book Presentation Seminar is coming up. This series is jointly organized by the Department of Geography and Regional Research & the Department of Sociology at the University of Vienna.
