About you (please use English):
Phoebe Everingham is a Ph.D candidate in the Discipline of Geography and Environmental studies at the University of Newcastle Australia. Her research focus is volunteer tourism om South America where she has developed relationships with two organisations in Peru and Ecuador. Phoebe is particularly interested in the ways in which volunteer tourism can foster intercultural understanding and mutuality drawing on postcolonial, decolonial and affective theories. Phoebe's work is now crossing into research on sex, where she is interested in the embodied sexual encounters between tourists and locals, particularly sexual encounters which cross racial and economic differences. She is interested in the ambiguities of these encounters; these encounters can reify cultural difference but also disrupt and at times subvert the ways in which power is typically conceptualized.
