CFP: Tourisme/Quaderns de l’Institut Català d’Antropologia

In 1980 the first issue of the journal Quaderns de l’Institut Català d’Antropologia was published. Over more than three decades it has contributed to the visibility of anthropological research in Catalonia, opening spaces of dialogue and debate on a variety of anthropological questions and publishing work not only by Catalan anthropologists but also by anthropologists working in other national traditions such as David Gilmore, Louis Assier-Andreu, Stanley Brandes, Julian Pitt-Rivers, James W. Fernandez, Norbert Elias, Claudia Fonseca, and Claude Lévi-Strauss, among others. The journal welcomes submissions that present new and important material that is of interest for anthropology theoretically, methodologically, and empirically.
This call for papers invites authors working on tourism in contemporary societies to submit manuscripts for a special issue that demonstrates what anthropology contributes to our understanding of this phenomenon. Suggested topics include the following:
1.       Methodological and epistemological contributions of anthropology to the study of tourism
2.       The analysis of social relations – reciprocity, mimesis, gaze – in tourist environments
3.       Tourists, lesiure, and travel in contemporary societies
4.       Processes of patrimonialization, appropriation, and staging    
5.       The social and political uses of tourism: hegemonic discourses
Submission guidelines for authors

Deadline for submissions
September 30, 2015
All submissions will be peer reviewed anonymously. The articles accepted will appear in Quaderns 32 (print), scheduled for publication in 2016
