Call for Papers
In recent years, the growth of tourism, hospitality, and events (T.H.E.) has been faster than the growth of the wider economy and other significant sectors including financial services, health care, and automotive businesses (WTTC, 2015). The micro and macro environments within which the T.H.E. sectors operate are increasingly complex, fluid and dynamic, requiring a more holistic approach to their operations, research and education.  Indeed, tourism, hospitality and events are recognised to be fields that can be studied from different perspectives including economics, sociology, anthropology, psychology, marketing, management, and geography.  Within T.H.E. we have undoubtedly witnessed a more flexible approach to research, scholarship, and education that, on the one hand can sufficiently address the challenges of the new era and, on the other hand, can help businesses to adapt to remain competitive. It is only through innovation and new ways of thinking that organisations can survive and develop (Sok & O’Cass, 2011). Thus, perspectives and research from different academic fields and disciplines are considerably important for understanding the evolution of T.H.E.   Further, the recent critical turn in T.H.E. has celebrated interdisciplinary research and scholarship recognising the ability of such border crossings to enrich our knowledge and understanding of these fields of study, thereby transforming education and practice.

 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Tourism & Responsibility
   

The 4th International Conference on CSR, Sustainability, Ethics & Governance responds to the increasing attention to CSR by academia, industry and government in various sectors including the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. 
Although CSR has remained a controversial concept, it is often linked to the principles of sustainability. The conference will, however, not only address critical socio-cultural and environmental challenges confronting tourism businesses, but provide an insight into CSR efforts, for instance, in the accommodation and transportation sectors as well as by tour operators and attraction providers. 
In featuring the latest research the conference aims to contribute to a better understanding of the role of CSR in tourism in theory and practice.

Suggested topics, but not limited to:
- trends in sustainable tourism
- ethics in tourism
- corporate social responsibility in tourism
- volunteer tourism
- responsible tourists
- intercultural encounters

Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue in an academic tourism journal and/or as chapter contributions to an edited research text with a renown academic publisher. 

The CSR Organising Committee are currently inviting submission of abstracts for oral presentations for the Conference. The Conference will take place on 26-28 July 2017 and held at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. The Conference is organised by the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability at Murdoch University in collaboration with the Global Corporate Governance Institute.

To have your abstract considered for acceptance, you must submit before the abstract deadline of 28th February 2017

London, Tuesday 29 August – Friday 1st September 2017


Session sponsor: Geographies of Leisure and Tourism Research Group (GLTRG)


Call for papers: Geographies of cruise tourism: Navigating the field(s) of inquiry

Session convenors: Jo-Anne Lester (University of Brighton) & Antonio Paolo Russo (University Rovira i Virgili)

-----------------

Cruise tourism unfolds within fluid, dynamic and often intensely competitive environments. Set against other forms of tourism the cruise market can be characterised as relatively niche. However sustained levels of market growth over the past two decades underscores its significance. Indeed investment in port developments and the infrastructure of receiving destinations is a key indicator of the continued confidence in the cruise sector and accompanying economic benefits.


Despite the developing interest and research activity from academics focusing on cruise tourism there remains a dearth of inquiry that reaches beyond economic and environmental impacts and consumer-orientated studies. Undoubtedly the landscape of cruise research is hampered by issues of access and accompanying methodological challenges, which often present barriers for those investigating cruise tourism. For example ship-based studies are scant and investigations within and from the perspective of receiving destinations remain relatively scarce, particularly so in relation to socio-cultural and technological processes of transformation of place. Moreover given the high levels of competition between cruise receiving ports of call, few inquiries exist that take a collaborative approach to research across destinations and regions.
