Call for Papers: New Zealand Geography Conference, 1 - 4 February 2016, Dunedin, New Zealand

Where to next for Tourism Geographies?


As fields of study, tourism and geography have long intersected. Shared interests and concerns, such as sustainability, well-being, resilience, migration, development, climate change and many others, continue to irrevocably link tourism and geography. Yet tourism geographies seem to linger at the fringes of mainstream social and cultural geographical research; never quite being part of geography departments nor fitting into often more business focussed tourism departments. Following on from the session on “Tourism Geographies’ at the 2014 NZGS/IAG (organised by Ben Iaquinto and Tara Duncan), this session aims to provide a space to highlight the intersections between these two key areas of study and also offer up space to consider what the future might hold for tourism geographies/geographies of tourism.   


Contributions are welcome (but not limited to) any of the following themes:

- The future of tourism geographies

- Tourism, geography and climate change

- Tourism and sustainability

- Research methods

- Tourism in the Southern Hemisphere

- The role of tourism geographies in development

- New forms of tourism

- The role of tourism within the geographical discipline

- Tourism and the more-than representational

- Mobilities as the new tourism geography (or is it passť?)

- Tourism and place-making


Please submit abstracts of up to 200 words to Tara Duncan (tara.duncan@otago.ac.nz) by Monday 5th October and see the conference website for more information (http://www.otago.ac.nz/nzgs-conference-2016/index.html).
