Critical tourism studies – Asia-Pacific

Call for papers: Recentering Critical Tourism Studies, 4-6/03/2018, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Final deadline for abstract and panel submission : 15/10/2017

The Asia Pacific is one of the fastest growing regions in the world for both international and domestic tourism. The growth of this region has radically altered the global tourism landscape and contributed to new modes of tourism practice, while engendering a decentering of Anglo-Western centrism in tourism theory. In this inaugural conference of the Critical Tourism Studies Asia Pacific network (CTS-AP), we seek to draw attention to the multiple modalities and recenterings of critical tourism scholarship.

The aim of this conference is to stimulate new conversations that examine issues across tourism theory, policy and practice. By highlighting perspectives in and beyond the region, we address how the “center” of tourism scholarship is mediated by ongoing shifts in the global political economy, tourism geopolitics and environmental governance.

We seek to re-frame the centers and peripheries of critical tourism studies through focused and critical analyses of tourism ideologies, practices, and policies, bringing a particular interest to how they circulate transnationally, regionally and locally through complex and manifold interconnections within the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

We welcome papers and presentations from scholars and practitioners that employ a critical approach to tourism studies. We anticipate the participation of practitioners, travel writers and tourism-focused scholars from across a range of disciplines such as anthropology, geography, sociology, political science, and cultural, environmental, women’s, area, and tourism studies.
