Dorina Maria Buda is the newly installed Rosalind Franklin Fellow in the Department for Cultural Geography at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. Dorina’s plan is to establish a research agenda in geographies of tourism at the University of Groningen.
Her goal is to explore and understand spatial and societal transformations through mobilities of tourism in places and times of socio-political turmoil.

Dorina’s first monograph titled Affective Tourism: Dark Routes in Conflict will be published with Routledge Taylor & Francis in 2015.
