Our Associate Fiona Bakas’ paper reports on research conducted in Crete. Her main, context-specific findings from this study were that seasonality is a positive thing for tourism handicraft micro-entrepreneurs; that it creates a liminal period at the beginning and end of each season 
where gender roles are re-negotiated; and that in tourism 
destinations characterized by high seasonality, there is seasonal relocation of grandparental childcare.
