2010-2021 Colloquium Series

The Tourism Studies Working Group is pleased to announce

2020-2020 Organizing Meeting

Friday, 28 August 2020, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Zoom Link: TBA

Dear colleagues,

We are planning an open meeting via ZOOM to discuss our program for the Fall Semester 2020. We presume that we will have our meetings at the same regular time, Fridays 5-7 pm, but as we are open to speakers from a wide range of time zones, it might suit some for us to meet 4-6 pm (like we used to).

We will post our U C Zoom link for everyone to join. Please be prepared to offer suggestions - via email before the meeting, if you want them discussed ahead of time. We hope to have our first events in September.
