Call for papers for a special issue of Tourism Geographies
Migration, Tourism and Social Sustainability
Jaeyeon Choe (Bournemouth University)
Peter Lugosi (Oxford Brookes University)
Contemporary economic, environmental, technological, political and societal developments have driven global mobility whilst simultaneously raising new challenges and questions regarding social and cultural aspects of sustainability. We invite authors to examine issues pertaining to sustainability and the nexus of migration and tourism. We are particularly interested in work considering the complexities of trends, challenges and opportunities around migration and tourism, which remain a relatively minor part in academic research. For example, large numbers of migrants have moved to destinations such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau and Dubai for work in the tourism, hospitality and leisure sectors, which raise numerous issues concerning wellbeing, quality of life, integration, the distribution of power and resources, employment conditions, education, the provision of basic infrastructure and services, governance, justice and human rights, which have yet to be fully examined.
We invite contributions from a variety of disciplines and fields including anthropology, cultural/human geography, sociology, psychology, economics, and migration, hospitality, leisure, event and tourism studies. Papers submitted to this special issue may consider topics that include:
Authors interested in contributing to the special issue should send (200-300 word long) abstracts to Jaeyeon Choe (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the 15th of December. Those submitting abstracts can expect to receive feedback on their potential submissions within 2 weeks.
Further details of the journal’s submission guidelines can be found here: http://www.tgjournal.com/notes-for-authors.html
The deadline for submitting manuscripts for the special issue is the 15th of March, 2019.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
