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.

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
