Call for Papers: Lifestyle Mobilities and Corporealities: Intersections and Issues
 
Convenors: Scott Cohen (Bournemouth University) and Tara Duncan (University of Otago)

Departing from other recent calls for papers (such as Hannam, Mosedale and Paris for the AAG 2010) that consider (im)mobilities across contexts of people, objects, technology and information, this session will focus on the lifestyle mobilities and moorings of corporealities. Moving as lifestyle has been fomented by transnational ties, technologies of transport and information and changing socio-cultural outlooks on mobilities. Consequently, the (re)formation of lifestyles characterised by mobilities has led to fresh corporeal organisations that justify empirical investigation. We are seeking papers that highlight such socio-cultural phenomena through a lens of lifestyle mobilities and ways in which these praxes intersect with:
•       definitional ambiguities of lifestyle
•       negotiations of expressivity and constraint
•       embodiment and sensuality
•       (con)fusions of personal identities
•       cultural hybridities
•       cosmopolitanism – openness, contradictions and the everyday
•       performances of binaries such as home/away and work/leisure
•       corporeal mobilities as a search for moorings
•       fluidities of tourism and the mundane
•       the romanticisation and privileging of corporeal mobilities
•       questioning mobilities as a paradigmatic approach to lifestyle
 
Please submit abstracts (of no more than 200 words) to both Scott Cohen( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) and Tara Duncan ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) by Friday February 12th, 2010.
 
Call For Papers: Migration Blurrings:  Exploring the Social Orientated Motives for Mobility and Migration
 
Convenors: Maria Thulemark (Dalarna University, Sweden) and Tara Duncan (University of Otago, New Zealand)
 
Moving for lifestyle, leisure, retirement or amenity seeking reasons has, in much of the literature and as Benson and O’Reilly (2009: 609) suggest, failed to capture the complexity of these various bounded terms.  As such, it is the blurring between these various types of migration that this session seeks to explore. Rather than limiting the session to, for instance, lifestyle or amenity migration, this session is more about the social and cultural motivations and impacts on both those who migrant/move and the local community.
 
We suggest that the personal, or social, aspects of certain types of migration have been under-researched. As such, it is the experience of those who move that becomes important.  Yet the focus should not be solely on these groups.  The session will also aim to raise questions about how these migrants affect the local community that they enter and what difference such an in-migration can have for a community. 
 
The session aims to look beyond traditional studies of lifestyle, amenity, retirement and leisure migration to consider themes including:
•       The social orientated motives for mobility and migration
•       Movement to less urban and/or rural areas
•       The impact of such migration on existing communities
•       The impact of tourism on this type of migration
•       The experience of the migrants after their move(s).

Call For Papers: Mediating the Tourist Experience: The Role of the Media in Contemporary Tourism

In the past, the tourism media has predominantly referred to the image of destinations constructed through media texts, in particular tourist brochures (see Urbain, 1989; Dilley, 1984; Dann, 1995) and postcards (see: Edwards, 1996, Mellinger, 1994, Markwick, 2001, Moors, 2001, Waitt & Head, 2002), with increasing attention towards films and television (see for example: Beeton, 2005; Hudson & Ritchie, 2006). Yet, with the prolific advancements and ever-increasing technologies of media communication, the possibilities of production and subsequent consumption are unequivocally changing the ways in which tourists imagine, understand and engage with destinations. Media and the outputs they mobilise become powerful products infused with political, cultural and social discourse and motivation. Indeed, the deployment and utilisation of media in particular contexts serves to directly influence the enactment and experience of being a tourist. The session therefore seeks to explore the new possibilities such media afford and in doing so, unpack the mediation practices that arise as a consequence of such new modes of engagement.  In doing so, it seeks abstracts covering the following themes;
•       Technologies of touristic  media: from films to the internet
•       The power relations of tourism media
•       Mediating tourist imagination and performance
•       Mobilising virtual spaces of travel
•       Media in context (spatial, temporal)
•       Future directions of tourism and media

This list is intended to offer suggestion and is not exclusive. Abstracts are welcome from all areas addressing issues of tourism and the media.

Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be sent to: Dr Caroline Scarles ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ), Dr Tara Duncan ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or, Jo- Anne Lester ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) by Friday February 12th, 2010.
