An expert meeting of the ATLAS ‘Space Place Mobilities in Tourism’ Special Interest Group
This special track, organised under the aegis of the ‘Space, Place and Mobilities in Tourism’ SIG, invites contributions which present conceptual, methodological and empirical advances in research on tourist places as shaped / negotiated / transformed through the intervention of multiple tourism mobilities, both human and non-human.
We are especially keen on bridging the gap between technical analyses (of mobility patterns, geographies, impacts) using a variety of methodological approaches, and the political economy of place development underlining relations of agency, dominance and contestation between the plurality of actors navigating the destination.
It is thus a strongly inter-disciplinary session situated at the crossroads of emerging ‘turns’ in social sciences such as mobilities, the relational turn, gendered approaches, and the critical and radical studies of place.
We thus welcome high quality abstracts on a variety of themes, including:
Tracking and making sense of encounters and relations between different mobilities in the urban space Tourist practices and processes of material and symbolic dispossession Otherness and mimesis at tourism destinations: mobilising identities The mobility clash: discourses of contestation and resistance What’s yours is mine – the rhetoric of collaborative tourism and its semantic (de)construction The political economy of urban mobilities: policing the city ‘for’ tourists Urban welfare and tourism – from conflicts to synergies Planning for the inclusive destination: towards a ‘procommons’ agenda
The organiser of this session will actively seek for publication opportunities with high-impact journals or book publishers. He will also make sure that the session will be followed up through active engagement of the participants in the ‘Space Place Mobilities’ SIG.
All abstracts will be subject to double-blind review by members of the scientific committee. Acceptance of a submission will be based on: theoretical and empirical significance; methodological soundness; relevance to the theme of the conference and logical clarity. The official language of the conference is English. Abstracts should be submitted via the ATLAS website using the abstract form provided BEFORE March 1st, 2018.
