Digitox seminar October 2021
Disconnection as leisure: digital detox locations
Studies of disconnection in travel and tourism are proliferating. This seminar presents results from the project Dis/Connect in Portugal running parallel to Digitox in Norway, in touristic dead-zones and digital detox programmes. We present results from observations as well as interviews with organizers/funders and participants, and invite discussion on the merits and challenges of comparative studies.
In this Digitox seminar, we are happy to have Ana Jorge and others from the Dis/Connect project as invited guests. This is a comparative project to the digitox project and is doing several parallel studies. The presentation is titled: Disconnection as tourism in Portugal: Experiences of space/time.
This is followed by a presentation by Trine Syvertsen (University of Oslo and Digitox) titled: "It is not about the smartphone". Studies of digitally restricted tourism spaces in the Norwegian countryside.
Faltin Karlsen (Kristiania University College and Digitox) will chair the discussion.
