Dr Hazel Andrews

Liverpool Business School

Dr Hazel Andrews is Reader in Tourism, Culture & Society at Liverpool John Moores University. As a social anthropologist Hazel is interested in issues of identity, selfhood and the body principally in relation to tourism and travel. Hazel’s PhD thesis was the first full length ethnographic study of British charter tourists which involved periods of participant observation in the resorts of Palmanova and Magaluf on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca. Hazel has drawn on this fieldwork to publish journal articles and book chapters. She is the author/editor of 6 books including the monograph ‘The British on Holiday’ published by Channel View in 2011. More recently she edited a collection on the subject of Tourism & Violence (Ashgate, 2014) in which her own chapter included work based both on Mallorca and Menorca. Hazel regularly reviews articles for the numerous tourism journals, is a founding editor of the Journal Tourism Consumption and Practice (www.tourismconsumption.org), has organised international conferences and symposia and is chair of the Royal Anthropological Institute’s Tourism Committee.
