Book: “Culture and society in tourism contexts”



Culture and society in tourism contexts

The Head of Culturdes, Dr. Antonio Miguel Nogués Pedregal, has edited the volume Culture and society in tourism contexts in the Tourism Social Science Series (vol. 17) edited by Jafar Jafari and published by Emerald.

Synopsis

This book strives to understand the social and cultural dynamics in Mediterranean tourism destinations through ethnographic examples and case studies from places including Greece, Spain, Morocco, Croatia, Lebanon, France, and Crete. Exploring themes such as globalization, cosmopolitanism, leisure mobilities, power, and late capitalism, this volume analyzes the blurring edges of tourism and migration, the role the former plays in the dialogical construction of cultural identities, or how the interconnection between each of the diverse residing sociocultural groups influences the relation with other groups. The work of several social scientists, from different interdisciplinary backgrounds, over numerous years is documented using multiple research techniques to observe cultures and societies as they occur in daily practices. This analysis discovers how tourism characterizes the daily lives of social groups living in tourists’ destinations and how it offers a distinctive sense of collective memories, thus unfolding cultures and societies in tourism contexts.

Summer School: “Studies of migration and mobility in Europe” (MOBILE)


12 August, 2012a25 August, 2012

The research members of CULTURDES, professor Dr. Antonio Miguel Nogués, is a staff member of the 2nd edition of the Summer School “Studies of Migration and Mobility in Europe” (MOBILE) organized within the framework of Erasmus Intensive Programmes – one of the Lifelong Learning Programmes (LLP) – and with the support of Fundacja Rozwoju Systemu Edukacji (FRSE), Poland, to be held in Sopot (Poland) from 12 through 25 of August of 2012.

The summer school „Studies of Migration and Mobility in Europe” (MOBILE) will be bringing together students and researchers from ten European universities (see MOBILE Partners) representing several academic disciplines. We will spend two weeks on discussions of the various aspects of travelling: migration, diaspora, tourism, transnationalism etc. and on transcending disciplinary boundaries. We will be debating routes and roots – as James Clifford (1997) had put it – of contemporary mobile populations from the perspectives of sociology and discourse analysis, anthropology and tourism studies, demography and economics. We will put the newest concepts such as motility, transience and hyper-diversity under meticulous scrutiny. We will also be discussing what are the most efficient ways of studying mobilities.
