On March 31, we have the pleasure to welcome some Lars Aaronson, Emma Björner, Eva Maria Jernsand and Helena Kraff to present some of their collaborative work in the Tourism in Multicultural Societies project (TiMS). This seminar will particularly focus on their work in Dals Långed.

The research project TiMS takes stance from the democratic theme and notions of diversity, equality and inclusiveness as stated in Agenda 2030, regarding place development in general and sustainable tourism in particular. The central objective is to explore the role of tourism in multicultural societies, and to act towards the embracement and representation of diversity in tourism development and place branding.

During the seminar, three cases from TiMS are presented, set in the context of Dals Långed and HDK-Valand at Steneby. Emma Björner (Gothenburg Research Institute) presents research on how the plurality of places and destinations is communicated, represented and experienced. Helena Kraff (HDK-Valand) and Eva Maria Jernsand (Department of Business Administration) present a case that explores multiculturalism in participatory development of physical and built environments as well as a case investigating the possibilities for intercultural exchanges through events.
