The work of social anthropologist/sociologist David Harrison (1941-2021) has been influential in the anthropology of tourism and in the sociology of development, contributing to debates across several bodies of academic literature based on original research in a number of world ethnographic regions - from the Caribbean, to Europe, to Africa, to Asia and the Pacific. In this colloquium, an international panel of scholars considers Harrison's many contributions and how his work may inform research praxis today.
