Professor Can Seng Ooi is Professor in Cultural and Heritage Tourism at the School of Social Sciences in the College of Arts, Law and Education. He is a sociologist and anthropologist by training. However before he moved to Australia in late 2016, he was Professor in International Business and Culture Industries at Copenhagen Business School. He worked there for two decades. Earlier, he was a soldier in the Singapore Armed Forces, a research officer for the German Friedrich Naumann Foundation in Singapore, and a sociologist at the Singapore public housing agency, Housing and Development Board.

Biography

Can Seng is a sociologist and anthropologist by training. Can Seng’s career spans over three continents. Soon after he completed his Master of Social Sciences in Sociology/Anthropology at the National University of Singapore, he joined the Friedrich Naumann Foundation, East and Southeast Asia Office as their Research Officer. The German Foundation offered civil and political development assistance and education in the region. After three years, in 1996, Can Seng became the Research Officer at Singapore’s public housing agency, the Housing and Development Board. That tenure was cut short because he accepted a PhD scholarship from Copenhagen Business School (CBS). He moved to Europe in late 1996, and stayed there till 2016.

After submitting his PhD thesis in September 1999, Can Seng was appointed a Lecturer at the Division of Leisure, Tourism and Hospitality at the Glasgow Caledonian University. He returned to CBS and Copenhagen a year later. The progressive scholarship approach in Scandinavia suited him. Over the years, he proved himself academically, attracted funding for his research and took on a number of leadership positions. He was appointed Professor in International Business and Culture Industries in 2013, and was the founding Director of the Centre for Leisure and Culture Services at CBS. He was also the Editor of the Copenhagen Journal of Asian Studies and Asia Matters: Business, Culture and Theory. He moved to Tasmania in late 2016.

With the Antarctic tourist industry currently growing and diversifying, the project aims to discover how cruiseoperators can foster positive and culturally informed relationships with the region among visitors of differentnational backgrounds. Through extensive in-situ fieldwork with partner Intrepid Travel, the project expects togenerate new understandings of how operators' active mediating role combines with multisensory experience ofAntarctica to forge human connections with this extreme but fragile place.
