Nataliia Godis

Doktorand|Doctoral Student


I am a doctoral student in Tourism studies. Before I started my PhD program here in Mid-Sweden, I have worked in hospitality for ten years in the role of a sommelier and briefly a guide. A good part of my work experience comes from two cruise companies.
I have a Bachelor and Magister in Sociology (Kyiv National Aviation university in Ukraine, my home country) and a Master in Service Management in Tourism (Lund University, Sweden).
I have traveled extensively for work and education and have lived for longer periods in Italy, Sweden and the USA. I hold a WSET award, level three, in wines and spirits.


~ forms of tourism: VFR, memory tourism, diaspora travel, wine and gastronomy, cruise tourism
~ agency: tourism workers
~ theoretical field: embodiment and senses


My PhD project is titled ‘Tourism knowledge in-the-making: from lay people to experts.’
I am keen to study how tourism workers and practitioners create knowledge-in-practice. I plan to do fieldwork with cruise ship workers and practitioners in food and beverage industry.
