User Rating: / 0
Written by Joachim Willms [Managing Director]   
Final CfP for the session on tourism mobilities at Royal Geographical Society's Annual International Conference at Cardiff University, UK, 28 to 31 August 2018.

Deadline for the abstracts is 5 February.

Travelling landscapes: tourism and leisure mobilities

Session convenors: Maarja Kaaristo, Steven Rhoden (Manchester Metropolitan University)

Travelling is simultaneously functional and meaningful, experienced in embodied ways that include being co-mobile and interacting with other humans, non-humans as well as various materialities. This session explores landscapes as touristic and leisurely ‘place-events’ (Pink, 2009) that occur through various mobile practices: sensory and embodied, but also discursive, narrated and imagined. We intend to look at various mobile practices such as cycling, walking, hiking, train travel, canal boating, sailing, coach travel, canoeing, hiking, campervan travel, and others, in order to discuss the landscapes of travelling and the travelling of landscapes.

Potential contributions may include (but are not limited to):
-          Embodiment and sensory experiences
-          Rhythms and tempo
-          Affect, emotion and atmospheres
-          ‘Large-scale’ materialities of travel (infrastructures, water, etc.)
-          Politics and power-relations of travel
-          Gendered landscapes of travel
-          Artefacts of travel (guidebooks, equipment, etc.)
-          Engagement with the environment, space and place
-          Everyday practices of tourism and leisure
-          Representations and narrations of various mobile tourism practices

THE INC 2018

International Conference

“Tourism Hospitality & Events in a Changing World”

26 – 28 June 2018

Submission Deadline: 20th January 2018

Venue: Buxton, U.K.

For more information, please visit the conference website:

The rapid growth of tourism, hospitality, and events creates the need for both, industry and academia to be ready to adapt to an ever-changing environment. Hence, tourism, hospitality, and events oriented research must be ready to respond effectively to these changes, and minimise the uncertainty created from a series of instability factors and current challenges such as globalisation, societal transformation, and the rapid development of IT and ICT. The dynamic and ever-changing character of the tourism, hospitality and events and the coexistence of a wide spectrum of different fields and disciplines, create the necessity of a holistic approach towards conceptualising, understanding and managing the relevant practises. Thus, diverse perspectives and research from different scientific fields and disciplines are considerably important for the understanding of the evolutionary process as well as the changing dynamics of tourism, hospitality and events.

THE INC (Tourism Hospitality & Events INternational Conference) aims to the improvement of theory and practice of the respective fields and aspires to become a beacon of research knowledge dissemination. THE INC welcomes theoretical, empirical, experimental, and case study research contributions. These contributions should clearly address the theoretical and practical implications of the research in reference. The proposed topics can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Competitiveness, sustainability and corporate social responsibility
  • Consumer behaviour, decision-making, expectations, experience and satisfaction
  • Cultural, heritage
  • Demand-supply forecasting, and performance studies
  • Economics and finance
  • Emerging and innovative research methods and methodologies
  • Event, sport and festival tourism
  • Human resources, equality, diversity, and labour operations
  • Innovation, creativity and change management
  • IT, ICT, e-tourism, and emerging technologies
  • Marketing, advertising, branding and promotional activities
  • Mobilities
  • Policy, planning, and development
  • Psychology, sociology, and social anthropology
  • Spas, health and well-being
  • Training and education
  • Other interdisciplinary areas related with the changing dynamics in tourism, hospitality, and events.
