Understanding tourism’s relationships with culture(s), and vice versa, is of ever-increasing significance in a globalising world. Tourism and Cultural Change is a series of books that critically examine the complex and ever-changing relationship between tourism and culture(s). The series focuses on the ways that places, peoples, pasts, and ways of life are increasingly shaped, transformed, created and packaged for touristic purposes. The series examines the ways tourism utilises/makes and re-makes cultural capital in its various guises (visual and performing arts, crafts, festivals, built heritage, cuisine etc.) and the multifarious political, economic, social and ethical issues that are raised as a consequence. Theoretical explorations, research-informed analyses and detailed historical reviews from a variety of disciplinary perspectives are invited to consider such relationships.
All books in this series are externally peer-reviewed.
Proposals for the series are welcome and should be submitted to Sarah Williams. Please read our notes about how to submit a book proposal.
