Tourism and Place Making
The Tourism and Place Making unit (TAPLAM) at the School of Business was formed in November 2017. TAPLAM's main thrust is to embark upon a continuous academic engagement with research themes at the intersections of tourism, space, place marketing, place making, and place branding amongst others. Considering the growth and fragmentation of tourism and place making studies, TAPLAM seems to approach these phenomena from an alternative and multi-disciplinary perspective driven by curiosity and critical engagement. We collaborate with academics, practitioners, and the wider public in our research and impact driven activities and events.
