Special Session: Pilgrimage and Pilgrims: Journeys, Destinations, Meanings

ICOT 2016: Naples, Italy, 29 June - 2 July 2016

(By: Noga Collins-Kreiner, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, University of Haifa, Israel) 

Tourism that is motivated by faith and spirituality is on the rise. Pilgrimage is one of the oldest and most basic forms of population mobility known to human society, and its political, social, cultural and economic implications have always been, and continue to be, substantial. But today, pilgrimage is defined differently, as a traditional religious or modern secular journey. The phenomenon is currently experiencing resurgence throughout the world, as longstanding shrines act as magnets to those in search of spiritual fulfillment. This special session aims to focus on the foreseeable future of religious, civil and secular pilgrimage and other forms of spiritual journeys. The emphasis will be on both sites (e.g. sacred sites, memorials, monuments) and human activities (e.g. pilgrimage, devotion, and visitation).

The session offers the opportunity to elaborate on these issues in an interdisciplinary way, by bringing together researchers who share an interest in pilgrimage (broadly defined) but come from different fields of study, such as geography, anthropology, sociology, psychology, management and economic related fields.

The discussion is open to researches from all backgrounds, and the aim is to present research which is both case study oriented and theoretical. The special session will seek papers that attempt to address the following key issues, including (but not limited to) the following themes:

· Managing pilgrimage sites: International, National, Regional and Local

· Touristification of pilgrimage sites

· The tourism – pilgrimage academic debate

· Dark tourism experiences

· The nexus between Pilgrimage and Heritage Tourism

· The relevance of New Age tourism to the "Old Age" pilgrimage product

· The commodification of faith-based travel

· The use of modern technology in faith-based travel experiences

· Secular pilgrimage

· Pilgrimage and Walking

Abstracts of no more than 350 words should be submitted electronically by May 22nd, 2016 to Dr. Noga Collins-Kreiner at: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
