Wissenschaftlicher Werdegang

Ruby Guyot completed her Master of Arts in Global History at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in 2023. Her Master’s thesis explored the history of tourism to Cuba between 1860-1960, in relation to how gender and sexuality became increasingly vital to the emotional outcomes of early tourism development. During her time in the Master’s program, she also served as the Editor-in-chief of Global histories, the student-led academic journal of the Global History program, as well as the lead organizer of the Global History Student Conference. Since October 2023, she is a doctoral candidate in the Modern History institute of the University of Tübingen. Her doctoral dissertation aims to explore the history of tourism between the Caribbean and the Mediterranean in the late 19th to mid 20th centuries. The project aims specifically to interrogate the role of emotions in tourism development, to understand how experiences such as pleasure, boredom, or anger took shape in the globally-minded development of competing tourism industries.
