Dr. Richard Tresidder PhD, MA, LLb (Hons)

Reader in Hospitality Studies


Summary

I hold a Masters degree in Socio-Anthropology and a PhD in Social Semiotics.

My research interests vary widely, but I have a particular interest in issues surrounding Food and Drink and their role in contemporary society.

About

In addition to being a reader in Hospitality Studies, I am also the Programme Leader for the Sheffield Business School DBA.

I have published widely within the fields of hospitality and tourism. Throughout my academic career I have researched and published in the areas of semiotics, marketing, tourism development, food in contemporary society and deviancy in the workplace. I also have a successful track record of supervising doctoral students.

Prior to joining Sheffield Hallam, I held various positions at Roehampton University, Anglia Ruskin University, Derby University and Keele University.

Teaching

I currently supervise a number of doctoral students, contribute to the DBA and deliver guest lectures in a number of subject areas.

Research

I am currently undertaking research in the areas of heritage management, deviancy in the workplace and the use of eye tracking technology in the hospitality sector.
