Projects for Available for Supervision

We are particularly interested in supervising projects in the following areas, and preference will be given to applicants with an interest in developing research in one of these areas:

1. Outdoor sport tourism, underprivileged families and wellbeing
Contact Dr Gill Pomfret (Associate Professor) for further information
[email protected]

This study will explore the role of outdoor nature-based sport tourism in the wellbeing of underprivileged families and their individual members. It will examine the inequalities and barriers that these families face in accessing natural environments and participating in activities such as hiking, cycling and canoeing. We welcome proposals which investigate social tourism opportunities and focus on different types of underprivileged families, which may include multi-generational, single parent, low-income, troubled or minority families.

2. Diversity and leadership in the service sector (events, hospitality, tourism)
Contact Dr Alisha Ali (Associate Professor) for further information  [email protected]

Service sector (events, hospitality, tourism management) workforces lack diversity in senior leadership positions. This study will explore issues of leadership, with a particular focus on access, power, and/or identity of people from marginalised groups (e.g. race/gender/disability/class/age/ religion) working within one of the service sectors. We welcome proposals in specific areas of leadership which address diversity within events or hospitality or tourism management.

3. Leadership of micro-crises: developing a sustainable tourism and hospitality industry 
Contact Professor Kayhan Tajeddini for further information at [email protected]

The pandemic has emphasised the need for further investigation into crisis preparedness and business resilience. Learning from micro-crises, such as operational service failures can provide hospitality leaders with the knowledge to manage macro-level crises such as man-made and/or natural disasters which disrupt the business. We welcome proposals that will focus on the leadership of micro-crisis management within the tourism and hospitality industry. Potential areas of investigation linked to the above are risk perception, organisational learning, leadership capability, service design, service innovation, or any other area related to the leadership of micro-crisis management.

4. Food events, ‘sustainability imaginaries’ and shaping consumer perceptions and behaviour
Contact Professor Jennifer Smith Maguire for further information at [email protected]

The project aims: to understand and utilize food events to improve regional food system sustainability. Objectives:
(1) investigate how food events construct ‘food sustainability imaginaries’;
(2) devise and evaluate a food event-based intervention to enhance consumers’ perceptions and behaviours relating to the environmental, socio-cultural, and economic sustainability of food.
