Tourism professor Marina Novelli

Tourism professor voted in as Fellow of the prestigious International Academy for the Study of Tourism

Professor Marina Novelli has been voted in as a Fellow of the International Academy for the Study of Tourism.

This is the highest learned society with membership comprised of just 84 of the most prominent academics contributing to the study of tourism on a global scale.

The Academy noted Marina’s ‘long-term contributions to the field of tourism research’. She presented at their conference in Leuven, Belgium, in May and clearly made a positive impression.

In order to become a Fellow, scholars must be nominated by another Fellow and go through an initial selection process, which successfully leads to an invitation to present at the Academy’s biennial conference. After this presentation, invited scholars must be voted in by the majority of existing fellows on the basis of their profile and presentation.

Marina will officially be inducted as a fellow at the International Academy for the Study of Tourism’s next conference in 2024. 

“This is the highest learned society in the field of tourism studies, it is therefore an honour for me to receive such a great recognition,” said Marina. 

“I look forward to contributing to the Academy’s future as a new Fellow and join such a great group of colleagues.” 

The news of Marina’s membership to the Academy comes just weeks after she won a Changemaker Impact Award for her work to support innovation and sustainability in the African tourism sector. 

For more than 20 years, she has been making significant contributions to research into tourism industry practices and policy challenges around topical sustainable tourism issues in Africa, Asia and Europe. 

Marina is also a member of the University of Brighton’s Centre for Change, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management (CENTRIM) and founding member of the Tourism, Hospitality and Events Research Group.
