Início: Fim: Data de abertura: Data de encerramento: Países: Portugal

Chamada para trabalhos, Turismo, Workshops

O workshop Living with Tourism: Paradoxes, Empowerment and Future Direction decorrerá de 24 a 25 de setembro de 2020, no ISEG – Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão, da Universidade de Lisboa.

Este workshop convida ao envio de trabalhos que se baseiam em investigações interdisciplinares e empíricas sobre como se (con)vive com o fenómeno do turismo.

Living with Tourism: Paradoxes, Empowerment and Future Direction pretende trazer ao debate uma reflexão sobre os impactos económicos, sociais e culturais do turismo, os seus paradoxos e as suas implicações mais amplas, não só em termos de relações de poder, como também no que diz respeito às relações estabelecidas um determinado espaço e com as comunidades que o habitam.

O workshop convida, também, para uma discussão mais ampla sobre as direcções futuras do turismo, de acordo com as mudanças mundiais relacionadas com a prosperidade económica dos países, novos estilos de vida e de consumo, a emergência de novos mercados, marcas e sectores de atividade e outras temáticas de investigação inovadoras no âmbito dos estudos em turismo.

O workshop será organizado em sessões temáticas de acordo com as propostas aceites. São encorajadas as submissão de resumos sobre contextos turísticos e/ou comunidades ‘anfitriãs’, relacionadas, mas não exclusivamente, com os seguintes tópicos:

  1. Mudança social e seus paradoxos;
  2. Empoderamento, identidade e representação;
  3. Governança e políticas públicas;
  4. Impactos económicos diretos e indiretos;
  5. Estruturas organizacionais inovadoras;
  6. Sustentabilidade, harmonia sociocultural e integração;
  7. Resistência, contestação e repulsa;
  8. Dinâmicas entre local e global, resiliência e cosmopolitismo;
  9. Processos de “invenção da tradição” e autenticidade;
  10. Discursos e práticas, performance e agencialidade;
  11. Produção e consumo de património;
  12. Cultura alimentar e gastronomia como recursos turísticos;
  13. Festivais culturais e eventos corporativos;
  14. Novos ciclos, novas parcerias e novas oportunidades.

A situação que estamos a viver, a de uma pandemia sem precedentes, está a afectar simultaneamente o mundo inteiro e a provocar uma abrupta interrupção da vida social, económica e da mobilidade das pessoas em todo o planeta. O turismo, atividade que assenta exatamente nestes eixos e da qual cada vez mais dependem países e populações sobretudo com as economias mais frágeis, será um dos setores mais afetados pela condição excecional que a COVID-19 veio trazer à humanidade. Isto leva-nos a acreditar que o turismo, tal como o conhecemos, nunca mais será o mesmo. Para além dos tópicos abordados aquando da abertura da chamada, este workshop convida também à reflexão e a contribuições sobre o futuro do turismo nesta nova realidade: ‘VIVER COM O TURISMO após COVID-19’.

Chamada de trabalhos a decorrer até 31 de maio de 2020.

CALL FOR PAPERS

LIVING WITH TOURISM: PARADOXES,EMPOWERMENT AND FUTURE DIRECTIONS

Portugal, Lisbon, ISEG 24-25 September 2020

Call deadline: 31, May 2020

The production and marketing of places as tourist destinations is one of the most common topics in contemporary social sciences research on tourism. Having moved beyond straightforward impact studies and adopting ethnographic methodologies of experimental immersion, social scientists have been able to grasp in the construction of tourism places in terms of sociocultural processes of actions and meanings, interconnection of local and global economic and political structures, social change, construction and performance of national and regional identities and the emergence of “other” identities, resistance and transformation of everyday practices. 

Understanding tourism as an intrinsically cultural phenomenon that can best be studied not as an independent entity, but instead as a social field in which many actors engage in multiple and complex interactions across time and space (both in situ and virtually), will contribute to a new body of scholarship. This approach is interested in exploring the impacts, involvements, resilience, paradoxes and tensions, and empowerment of local communities and their interrelated practices of hosting, moving, producing and consuming, revelled in the particularities of each touristic site. Accordingly, a holistic approach should be taken regarding how tourism fits into broader and intricate sociocultural systems of meaning and actions, and how it operates at various levels, such as economic effects, emergence of new public policies, political ways of legitimacy and/or populism, power relations, sustainability and lifestyles, creativity and entrepreneurship, resources consumption, commodification of culture, social inclusion and exclusion, and inequality. In this sense, ‘places of tourism’ are privileged fields to study the marks (although transitory) of a globalised and interconnected world of transnational flows of products, capital, information, multinational organisations, people and imagery, which expose their local differences and its specific dynamics, discourses, interests and uses of space.

At the institutional level, tourism industry global success has been awakening a growing network of stakeholders involved in tourism development, including local, national, and international organisations, eager to mobilise tourism as a force for sustaining and developing culture and economy. The appeal to visitors’ senses, experiences and feelings, based on market segmentation and product differentiation of a particular place, are new tourism trends in development all over the world. Intangible heritage, food and wine, health and wellness, religious tourism, nature and ecotourism, sports and adventure, technological and virtual tourism experiences are among the raising forms of tourism activities and destinations strategies to innovate and diversify their tourism offers.

This workshop seeks paper proposals focused on interdisciplinary and empirical research on ‘living with tourism’, i.e., a rethinking of tourism economic, social and cultural impacts and its paradoxes, and its wider implications in terms of power relations towards a specific space and the communities that inhabit it. It also invites to a broader discussion on tourism future directions in line with worldwide changes of nations economic prosperity, consumption lifestyles, rising of new markets, brands and activity sectors, and cutting-edge research topics in tourism studies.

The workshop will be organized into thematic sessions accordingly with the proposals accepted for presentation. We encourage the submission of abstracts on tourism contexts and host communities research related with topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Social change and its paradoxes; 
  • Empowerment, identity and representation;
  • Governance and public policies; 
  • Direct and indirect economic impacts;
  • Innovative organizational structures;
  • Sustainability, sociocultural harmony and integration;
  • Resistance, contestation and repulsion;
  • Dynamics of local-to-global, endurance and cosmopolitanism;
  • Processes of invention of tradition and authenticity; 
  • Discourses and practices of enactment, performance and agency;
  • Production and consumption of heritage;
  • Food culture and gastronomy as tourist resources; 
  • Cultural festivals and corporate events;
  • New cycles, new partnerships and new opportunities.                                                                                                                                                          

Further information about the event’s keynote speakers and registration open date, will be provided in due course.  

 

The unprecedented pandemic situation caused by the new coronavirus which is affecting the entire world, at the same time, causing an abrupt shutting down of social, economic and mobility life of the planet. Tourism is all about these activities, and is also about the generalized and increasing economic dependence on it, specially of the most fragile countries and populations. After COVID-19, we might believe that the future of tourism, as we know it, will never be the same. In addition to the topics already covered by the call, contributions and reflections on 'LIVING WITH TOURISM after COVID-19' issues are most encourage.
