Mr Ross Bennett-Cook

My research speciality lies in the anthropology of tourism. I am currently researching tourist spaces (resorts) and how they are used by both domestic and international visitors, the impacts of tourism on societies and cultures, and relationships between tourists and hosts. My PhD research explores Turkish tourist resorts as places of escapism and refuge.

I am currently working with colleagues at Akdeniz University and Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University on internal Turkish Eastern-Western migration in Ortaca. This research explores migration to work in tourism and the impacts this has on migrant societies and cultures.
