Geographer and filmmaker, Queen Mary University of London

Jessica Jacobs work focuses on the geography of tourism and leisure as a means to better understand how the global north creates and understands the world. She is particularly interested in the way that western imagined landscapes of the Middle East inform and influence the development of heritage tourism and sex/romance tourism. She uses film as a research method and also developed a series of creative collaborative filmmaking workshops (CCF) suitable for marginalised communities.
