Marineli Codin is a doctoral student based in Brighton Business School at University of Brighton. The purpose of her research is to conduct a longitudinal study and to critically analyse the construction and projection of national identity in post-communist Romania, through tourism promotional campaigns. Her thesis proposes to identify which elements of history, heritage, culture(s) and identities are recurrent and fundamental in the process of creating Romania's self-image, self-projection, and its efforts to reshape the national identity from 1990 until 2020.
The rationale of her study develops from the necessity to analyse the process of constructing and projecting the Romanian national identity through tourism, as an important gap in the knowledge of tourism studies has been identified. Moreover, the construction and projection of national identity through tourism campaigns have a broader meaning for post-communist countries, as they are in need to rebuild their identities from the roots and to detach from their communist past.
