Contemporary geographies of leisure, tourism and mobilities

Tourism, Performance and the Everyday

Consuming the Orient

Michael Haldrup and Jonas Larsen, both at Roskilde University, Denmark

ourism, Performance and the Everyday carefully analyzes the cultural and social impacts of mass-tourist experiences of ‘exotic’ places on the wider aspects of everyday life. It treats mass- tourism as a cultural phenomenon that feeds into the practices and networks of peoples’ everyday lives rather than as an isolated, trivial or ‘exotic’ event. It traces how these impacts are mediated by various mobilities between home and away through innovate mobile and ethnographic research methods at tourist destinations and the home of tourists. The book contains analysis of diaries, photographs, blogs and photo web sharing sites; participant observation of performing tourists and ‘home ethnographies’ of the ‘afterlife‘ tourist photographs, souvenirs and memories.

Cultural Heritage and Tourism in the Developing World

A Regional Perspective

Edited by Dallen J. Timothy, Brigham Young University, USA and Gyan P. Nyaupane, Arizona State University, USA

Cultural Heritage and ourism in the Developing World is the first book of its kind to synthesize global and regional issues, challenges, and practices related to cultural heritage and tourism, specifically in less-developed nations. The importance of preservation and management of cultural heritage has been realized as an increasing number of tourists are visiting heritage attractions. Although many of the issues and challenges developing countries face in terms of heritage management are quite different from those in the developed world, there is a lack of consolidated research on this important subject. This seminal book tackles the issues through theoretical discourse, ideas and problems that underlay heritage tourism in terms of conservation, management, economics and under-development, politics and power, resource utilization, colonialism, and various other antecedent notions that have shaped the development of heritage tourism in the less-developed regions of the world.
