Journal of Heritage Tourism

Special Issue: Heritage Tourism in the Caribbean

Guest Editors: Dr. Leslie-Ann Jordan and Professor Lee Jolliffe, University of the West Indies



The Caribbean has immense cultural, natural and built heritage tourism assets that have been molded by its history of slavery, colonialism and the plantation economy.  Mather and Todd’s (1993:139) comments are still true today as the Caribbean’s variety is still regarded as “…one of its major selling points: its people, who are a mix of races; its different languages; its architecture and fortifications arising from its colonial past; its variety of religions ranging from Christianity to Hinduism to voodoo; its varied topography, from flat sand islands of the Bahamas to the lush tropical mountains of St. Lucia; its cuisine, ceremonies and traditions”.   In the wake of increasing competition from emerging destinations, many Caribbean destinations have realized that their future tourism potential is almost solely based on the utilisation of this rich heritage.  Their plans to harness these assets have been riddled with as many challenges as success stories.  The purpose of this special issue is to share and discuss some of the key issues facing heritage tourism in the Caribbean.

-          Impact of technology

-          Issues in the interpretation of contested heritage

The Journal of Heritage Tourism is a peer-reviewed, international transdisciplinary journal, edited by Professor Dallen J. Timothy, with a distinguished international editorial board. JHT focuses on exploring the many facets of one of the most notable and widespread types of tourism. During the past 20 years, the study of tourism has become highly fragmented and specialised into various theme areas, or concentrations. Within this context, heritage tourism is one of the most commonly investigated forms of tourism, and thousands of scholars and industry workers are involved in researching its dynamics and concepts. JHT seeks to examine critically all aspects of culture, heritage and tourism.
