About me

I obtained my PhD from the University of Pennsylvania (USA) and am currently a Marie Curie Fellow (7th European Community Framework Programme) and Post-doctoral Fellow of the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Leuven (Belgium). In addition, I am a Visiting Research Associate at the Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change, Leeds Metropolitan University (UK).
My research interests include anthropologies of mobility and travel, the local-to-global nexus, discourses and imaginaries of Otherness, cultural brokering, and public interest ethnographies. I have published peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and newspaper articles on these topics in the USA, the UK, India, Indonesia, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Spain, and Colombia.
I am currently writing a book on the anthropology of tour guiding and researching the complex (dis)connections between tourism imaginaries and ideas of transcultural migration (with ethnographic fieldwork in Indonesia, Tanzania, Chile, and Belgium). I am on the editorial boards of Annals of Tourism Research, AIBR - Revista de Antropología Iberoamericana, International Journal of Tourism Anthropology, and Mondes du Tourisme. I am also on UNESCO’s and UNWTO’s roster of consultants and an expert panel member of the National Geographic Society’s Center for Sustainable Destinations.

Dear Noel, sorry for being so late in responding but I was busy with my paper and the trip to Sweden for the ISA convention. Are you coming to the next AAA? Maybe organizing a session? Please let me know. I plan to go, it's a quick way of seeing many colleagues I would otherwise seldom see. Best wishes, Maria-Pia

Fully funded PhD position in social and cultural anthropology at the University of Leuven (Belgium) The abundant media commentaries surrounding the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, remind us that global sports events are about so much more than mere sports. While full attention is given to the intense mobilities during the actual events (in terms of athletes and their support teams, spectators, journalists and service providers), there is a different type of human activity and mobility…See More
