The Disruptive ‘Other’? Exploring Human-Animal Relations in Tourism

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formDigital or Visual ProductsScientificpeer-review


Although there is a growing body of literature focusing on the use of qualitative research approaches for understanding human-animal relations, relatively little attention has been devoted to the topic in consumer research. Animals have a central role in the contemporary tourism industry and thus in the creation of tourism experiences. This videography, drawing from posthumanist epistemology and ontology, interprets and theorises multispecies relations in tourism context.

This film contributes to research done on assemblages and posthumanism. We construct human-animal relations as a multispecies assemblage (Haraway, 2008) which consists of various subjects and “considers being as ontologically multiplicitous, in which being is emergent via the present material configuration of multi-being connections” (Ogden et al., 2013).
