2020 has brought such drastic change to the Tourism, Hospitality and Events industries as travel restrictions and socially distancing guidelines are continually forcing businesses to adapt. At Routledge, we are striving to provide students with the tools they need to face these changing industries with our growing textbook offering, and to ease remote learning with increased online resources.
New research in these fields is also as important as ever, since the past year has given pause for thought on the ways in which we can and should rebuild tourism in a more sustainable way. Get in touch to learn more about publishing with us!
The new Routledge Critical Event Studies Research Series responds to the call for a more critical approach to the study of events. The series focuses on critical perspectives in festivals and events, incorporating current theoretical and methodological developments and looking at under-explored areas in events research. The first published title is on Gendered Violence at International Festivals.
With six new titles this year, the Contemporary Geographies of Leisure, Tourism and Mobility series continues to provide cutting-edge research on this intersection of subject areas. The latest book, Degrowth and Tourism, provides an original response to the central problem of growth in tourism, an imperative that has been intrinsic within tourism practice for decades, and is increasingly under question given the challenges of overtourism, COVID-19 and the contribution of tourism to climate and environmental change.
