Location: Campus Borlänge
Locale: Campus Borlänge: Room BC
Presenter: Emily Höckert

Emily Höckert's talk looks at tourism ethics at the crossroads of hermeneutic phenomenology and postcolonial philosophies of hospitality. By drawing attention to the idea of 'the how is the what', it asks how thinking with hospitality can shape the ways in which we encounter and dwell with multiple others. The idea put forward suggests that hospitality, responsibility and care all require a readiness to interrupt one's own ways of doing, knowing and being.
