Routledge Advances in Tourism and Anthropology

Series Editors:

This series draws inspiration from anthropology’s overarching aim to explore and better understand the human condition in all its fascinating diversity. It aims to expand the intellectual landscape of anthropology and tourism in relation to how we understand the experience of being human.

As people inhabit, organize, construct and classify the world around them they transform it into a meaningful world of places, ‘things’ and activities reflective of human culture and society. Tourism is a significant activity capable of uncovering the ways in which life and living is constructed, experienced and understood. This series provides a home for critical inquiry into the spaces, places, and lives in and through which tourism unfolds. Spaces and places such as the coast, the countryside and the built environment; airports, hotels and cruise ships; museums, attractions and souvenir shops; virtual spaces and that of the imagination. How such spaces are embodied, thought about and ‘used’ – imagined, constructed and experienced, memorialized and contested – are indicative lines of enquiry.

Although anthropology provides the guiding framework we invite contributions that draw from related disciplines and fields of study for example, philosophy, history, sociology, geography, cultural studies, architecture, the arts, feminist studies, and so forth.
