Elizabeth Carnegie’s work is interdisciplinary drawing on sociology, anthropology, material culture studies and social history. She is interested in the body as a site of memory and the way the body passes through memory spaces as visitor/tourist. This project reflects an intergenerational study of the role and meaning of tattoos within seafaring communities. Other work includes a multi-side study of museums in post-communist countries in eastern Europe with a special focus on frozen bodies – monumental statuary. She was a curator before academe and previously taught at Sheffield university and currently teaches tourism and heritage at Northumbria University
Derek Bryce's research interests lie mainly in the critical appraisal of the commodification of cultural heritage resources, the rendering of places into destinations and the often contested politics underpinning these. This is expressed principally in his publications examining the politics of 'Western' representation of Islamic culture and destinations, in which he adopts a Foucauldian/post-Saidian approach with notable contributions in the journals including Theory, Culture & Society, Annals of Tourism Research and Environment and Planning A. He is involved in an ongoing project examining the commercialisation of Ottoman cultural heritage in SE Europe and is an external partner in SOAS-University of London's interdisciplinary Centre for Ottoman Studies. His ongoing activity in other contexts includes exploring the culturally contingent notion of 'authenticity' in heritage consumption and the commercialisation of 'real and imagined pasts' in ancestral tourism.
