Mobile video ethnography for evoking animals in tourism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Methodologies to account for animal agency in tourism are still in their infancy. This paper extends developments that seek to enrich methodologies for studying the role of animals in tourism by arguing that methods relying solely on talk- and text-based accounts struggle to appreciate the moving encounters between human and non-human animals. Hence, the paper embraces the opportunities afforded through moving image methodologies by exploring mobile video ethnography as a way to account for and understand how tourism emerges through encounters between living agents. Whilst recognising the need for caution, the paper demonstrates how mobile multispecies video ethnography contributes to gaining access to the intimate spaces of human-animal encounters in tourism.
