Tourism Geographies Call for Papers - Special Issue: "Emerging Media Technologies in the Tourist Encounter"


Tourism Geographies is pleased to announce a Call for Papers toward the Special Issue, "Emerging Media Technologies in the Tourist Encounter", guest edited by Dr. Jolynna Sinanan, University of Manchester, UK and Dr. Christian Ritter, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands. 


“This special issue examines practices, meanings and impacts of emerging media technologies: digital, mobile, geo/locative and augmented reality technologies within tourism geographies. The special issue aims to situate emerging media technologies within processes of the production and transformation of space, spatial knowledge and social relations within the tourist encounter. We ask contributors to the special issue to consider: What are the configurations of different technologies involved with tourist experiences? In what ways do emerging media technologies shape tourism imaginaries and experiences? What are the particular cultural inflections in the relationship between digital and tourist practices? How do broader infrastructural and economic conditions shape the relationships between digital and tourist practices?”

Abstracts are due October 15, 2021.
