Women and tourism – CALL FOR PAPERS

Invited co-editors: Véronique Antomarchi and Suzanne de la Barre

Anticipated Publication Date: 2011


At a global scale, tourism is a dynamic sector that influences economic, social, cultural and political activities. The purpose of this issue is to critically examine gender relations and differences in touristic practices, experiences and representations. Questions that provide insight into women and travel will be explored from interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives (e.g., geography, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, history, economics, philosophy etc.). The aim is to provide an analysis of women’s travel, and examine gender and tourism issues, in a manner that investigates boundaries and differences between genders (or the absence of differences). The issue’s more specific purpose is to provide a description and analysis of the role tourism has on the construction and development of the social, cultural and political identity of women and gender.

Your manuscript can address any of the following issues, or any other related issues:


1) The socio-cultural, economic, and/or political characteristics of female travellers, or feminist and/or other perspectives on touristic practices in relation to gender;

2) Women’s travel markets (“market segments”) and specialized women’s travel tours: For instance, hunting trips for women, women and nature tourism, spas and other retreats, including diet and pre and post natal, products and services created for cosmetic surgery related travel, women only hotels;

3) Tourism and family life: The influence of vacations on family dynamics;

4) Sexuality, femininity and tourism: Representations of desire and destination marketing (shaped, naked, tanned bodies), sex tourism (from male and female perspectives), wedding travel, gay travel, etc.;

5) Female explorers, adventurers and pioneers;

6) Feminization of tourism labour: Inequities, work/family life issues;
