3º TURCHAVES – CICLO DE CONFERÊNCIAS SOBRE TURISMO: “Turismo e alimentação”

Chaves (Portugal), 18 de Abril de 2012 (Quarta-feira)

Apresentação

O objetivo deste ciclo de conferências é refletir coletivamente sobre a relação entre turismo e alimentação, uma relação mutável que, na atualidade, tem convertido a comida em produto turístico consumido de diversas formas e com plurais significados.

Os alimentos servem, de uma forma prática, para satisfazer necessidades primárias, mas encontram-se, simultaneamente, associados a afetos e emoções nutridos pela gente e pelos espaços onde nos alimentamos. Para além disso, os alimentos são um elemento configurador das nossas memórias e identidades. Noutra perspetiva, os alimentos podem ser pensados como elementos de ligação entre o local e o global, entre o capitalismo dominante e as economias locais. A organização da comida expressa igualdades e desigualdades, semelhanças e diferenças culturais, entre grupos e subgrupos humanos. A comida não se reduz a uma simples atividade biológica ou de nutrição, podendo ser considerada também um campo de luta ideológica, entre indivíduos e grupos.

Hoje em dia, a alimentação é um elemento central na experiência turística; nalguns casos é algo periférico, mas noutros ela torna-se central, daí que falemos em turismo gastronómico e turismo alimentar. O turismo alimentar, nas suas mais variadas expressões (ex. enoturismo, caféturismo, restauração, rotas turísticas alimentares, etc.), é parte das experiências turísticas, como motivação e prática turística estruturante e estruturadora das memórias turísticas. O turismo gastronómico pode ser entendido como algo mais do que comida no prato:

A visita a produtores primários ou secundários de alimentos, participação em festivais gastronómicos e procura de restaurantes ou lugares específicos donde a degustação de alimentos e toda experiência inerente é a motivação principal para viajar” (Hall e Mitchell, 2001).

Com esta conferência queremos debater estas questões acima explicitadas, de forma a produzir um pensamento, num contexto de educação turística superior, que permita construir melhores formas de fazer turismo. Pretendemos também que esse pensamento tenha uma incidência, em primeiro lugar, na conexão com o espaço envolvente: Trás-os-Montes, Norte de Portugal, Galiza, Península Ibéria. É nossa intenção, ainda, aprender a pensar e a refletir o turismo, na sua relação com a alimentação, enquanto atividade humana complexa, mutável e dinâmica, admitindo que este “aprender a pensar” é uma atividade eminentemente prática, dinâmica e necessária para melhor construir o futuro.

Dinâmica

Com base na comunicação de oradores académicos, empresários e agentes de desenvolvimento ligados ao campo do turismo alimentar, tencionamos organizar um debate estruturado em 4 linhas temáticas:

a) A importância dos produtos locais na sua relação ou não com o turismo.

b) A restauração como experiência de mediação turística.

c) A patrimonialização, a promoção e a valorização dos alimentos e a sua influência no consumo turístico.

d) A educação e formação de profissionais no campo do turismo alimentar.

Estas linhas temáticas serão abordadas em 4 mesas redondas, com comunicantes previamente convidados. Cada orador terá um tempo de uns 15-20 minutos, aproximadamente, para contar a sua experiência-reflexão sobre o tema, tendo posteriormente um debate com todos os assistentes.

As palestras serão gravadas audiovisualmente e nelas colaborarão os alunos da licenciatura em turismo do Pólo da UTAD em Chaves.

CFP Conference: TORINO JANVIER 2012

Second International Workshop
on
UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE
ECONOMIC AND POLICY ISSUES
Reggia di Venaria (Turin, Italy) 24-25 January 2012
CALL FOR PAPERS
Submissions of the extended abstracts:
Deadline 1st of NOVEMBER 2011
Aim of this international workshop is to analyze the main economic issues related to the
international role and future challenges of UNESCO World Heritage.
Despite the great success in promoting cultures and ecosystems at the global level, UNESCO
nowadays is in a new phase of re-optimizing its consolidated strategies. World heritage sites are
increasingly recognized as hotspots for promoting local sustainable development and thereby
favoring world cultural and natural diversity. This arguably means that simple conservation and
preservation strategies should be complemented through new mechanisms where cultural capital
and natural resources expressed by World Heritage properties can be used as an asset for economic
and social development.
In a dynamic world, UNESCO is also facing the challenge of sustaining the evolution of historic cities
and the culture of new towns established under the future trends of urbanization pressure. Finally,
as the number of World Heritage sites is growing each year, the List is facing new challenges
regarding the governance of the World Heritage system and the ability to raise funds for the
preservation and promotion of such international public good.
To explore in more details these topics, the workshop will be divided into the following sections:

1. UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
After forty years of operation of the 1972 UNESCO Convention, many forms of tangible cultural
heritage and natural ecosystems have been preserved. Today, there is a growing attention to the
issue of sustainable development, which means, first of all, resources for preserving sites for future
generations, for reducing inequalities between properties and for enhancing the quality of life, the
traditional cultural expressions of places and the intercultural dialogue.
For cultural properties special focus should be given to the production of new forms of cultural and
creative expressions from the communities involved in the World Heritage Properties. First, this
means to sustain material cultural production by enhancing the role of arts, crafts and traditional
knowledge. Secondly, sustainable development may be triggered through the production of new
cultural contents in the creative industries. Third, the aim is to produce culture by means of
heritage, monuments and natural resources in innovative and productive ways. Fourth issue is to
encourage sustainable tourism actions at World Heritage sites.
As far as natural properties are involved, sustainable development mostly refers to their valuation
and economic impact, that means assessing the ecosystem service values that are
created/enhanced by World Heritage protection and how are they reflected in the local economy.
Finally, what are the best indicators to measure sustainable development generated by the
interaction of UNESCO World Heritage sites, local cultures and the socioeconomic environment? Due
to the acknowledged limitations of traditional economic indicators, new measures are attracting
interests for their openness to political, ethical and cultural dimensions of societies. In the
evaluation of the economic and social outcomes of site management approaches based on network
analysis helping to describe local systems and their evolution are welcome.
2. MODERN AND CREATIVE CITIES EMBRACING THEIR CULTURAL HERITAGE
One of the emerging issues in the new millennium is to understand the role and evolution of urban
contexts and historic cities. This fundamental target is not only a priority for UNESCO, but it is
shared by several agencies of the UN system and other international bodies such as the World
Bank, the European Investment Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank.
Actually, the rationale behind the development of historic cities and the conservation of cultural
urban landscape requires a better understanding of the benefits and costs of urban planning,
development and conservation strategies, namely from the analysis of anthropic pressure to that on
carrying capacity and congestion costs. As a result, analyses should address how to cope with the
emerging challenges for urban historic conservation: global population growth, the blast of domestic
and international tourism and the increasing pressure for land conversion inside and outside the
historic precincts. Another issue relates to the pressure of migration from rural to urban areas.
Many overpopulated countries are facing the alternative of planning the construction of new towns
or governing the expansion of the existent metropolitan areas. Both choices are full of challenges
concerning the role of culture and cultural identity of these new urban landscapes.
3. UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY
UNESCO protects cultural diversity since its early beginnings. In 2005, the Convention on the
Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions has been launched to support the
goal of cultural diversity. While protecting cultural diversity is an overarching issue, one of the main
challenges is to find reliable measures of cultural diversity and to understand if the current effort in
promoting diversity is strong enough. Is there room for increasing cultural diversity in the World
Heritage system or the ceiling has already been reached? What are relations between natural and
cultural diversity? For celebrating cultural diversity, researchers are invited to showcase culture in
an era of change.


4. POLICIES FOR SUCCESS: UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE AND GOVERNANCE
The increasing success of 1972 UNESCO Convention requires an enhanced governance. How to
enforce conservation strategies? How to develop local strategies for reducing economic and
institutional unbalances among World Heritage Properties?
Therefore, there is the need to develop new governance instruments that make protected areas
contribute to local wellbeing while maintaining or enhancing World Heritage values of the site.
These policies should cover new options of fundraising, management, monitoring, planning and
producing culture. In particular, fundraising can be sustained by strategies based on microcontributions
from tourists and visitors to the World Heritage Properties.
More generally, we may inquire into the way the World Heritage List is constructed. Are there only
concerns for the outstanding universal value of properties inscribed or there are other political,
bureaucratic and institutional factors affecting the List composition?

Theoretical contributions as well as case studies are welcome. The workshop is open to
scholars, doctoral students and young researchers, from economics, sociology, law and
other related fields. A selection of the contributions could be published in a special issue
of a journal or in book.
The abstract of the proposed paper should be about 2000 words.
The deadline for extended abstract submission is the 1st of November 2011.
Some travel and accommodation funds are available. Acceptance will be notified by the
10th of November 2011.

Please submit the abstract and the application form to: centrostudi@css-ebla.it

CFP : VIII CITURDES – CONGRESSO INTERNACIONAL DE TURISMO RURAL E DESENVOLVIMENTO SUSTENTÁVEL

UNIVERSIDADE DE TRÁS-OS-MONTES E ALTO DOURO – PÓLO de Chaves
VIII CITURDES: CONGRESSO INTERNACIONAL SOBRE TURISMO RURAL E DESENVOLVIMENTO SUSTENTÁVEL

“TURISMO RURAL EM TEMPO DE NEORURALIDADES”

CHAMADA PARA ENVIO DE COMUNICAÇÕES, FILMES E PÓSTERS
Chaves (Portugal), 25-27 de Junho de 2012
Webs: www.utad.pt/<http://www.utad.pt/> www.cetrad.info<http://www.cetrad.info/>
A 8ª edição do CITURDES tem como objectivo reflectir sobre o papel do turismo em contextos de pós-ruralidades ou neo-ruralidades, segundo as perspectivas teóricas adoptadas. Nestes novos contextos, os turistas encontram-se não apenas com os velhos residentes rurais, mas também com novos habitantes neorurais, recém-chegados, retornados ou outros que se deslocam ao rural na procura do que imaginam ser uma melhor qualidade de vida. Esta translocalidade, que questiona a falsa e simplista dicotomia rural/urbano, é especialmente relevante quando falamos de turismo rural e desenvolvimento sustentável, pois observa-se uma mistura complexa de agentes sociais que estão a reconstruir e resignificar os tradicionalmente chamados espaços rurais. É o que Jesús Oliva (2010) denomina como “new rural melting pots”, para o qual contribui decisivamente o turismo rural associado às ideologias da renaturalização e da patrimonialização cultural.

O Congresso tem como objectivo criar um espaço de encontro de académicos e investigadores, na sua maior parte ibero-americanos, e também de propiciar o contacto com a realidade rurbana do interior Norte de Portugal e da Galiza.

Poderão ser apresentadas comunicações, filmes e posters (ver www.utad.pt<http://www.utad.pt/>) até o 31 de Dezembro de 2011, enviando para: citurdeschaves@utad.pt<mailto:citurdeschaves@utad.pt>. Haverá conferencistas de destaque como Bernard Lane, Elisabeth Kastenholz, Ivo Elesbão, Artur Crosby e Marcelino de Souza. O Congresso terá lugar nas instalações do Pólo da UTAD em Chaves (ver http://www.esechaves.pt/ ) e oferece um programa social que permitirá conhecer alguns aspectos da ruralidade e rurbanidade deste canto do Noroeste Ibérico peninsular.

Scope and Study Objectives

This applied anthropology module will provide current and future cultural policy stakeholders, heritage site managers and tourism practitioners the conceptual and practical tools for the sustainable management of tourism in world heritage sites. Through lectures, seminars and field site visits, participants will be familiarized with the complexity of the heritage industry and the economic and sociological dimensions of tourism site development. Through the teaching of both applied and theoretical knowledge, participants will be empowered to critically evaluate the potentials and also the ambivalences of the world heritage programme and UNESCO’s other global policy agendas, i.e. the creation of peace in the minds of people, development through poverty alleviation, the Global Strategy for a balanced representation of the world’s diversity through the World Heritage list, immaterial culture. Besides its focus on sociological aspects and ethical aspirations of World Heritage, the module provides training in essential tourism site management tools.

Teaching Languages

The module will be taught in English. The extended essay that will constitute 75% of the final assessment can be written either in English or Portuguese. Additional languages may be accepted (e.g. French, German). Please talk to the module leader.

Learning Objectives

a)     Assess and apply techniques and tools for the sustainable management of tourism in World Heritage Sites (WHS) (these can of course also be applied to the management of any other heritage site);

b)     Critically analyze and synthesize academic literatures on tourism/heritage and discuss academic theory in relation to policy documents, data gathered through direct observation/interviews and secondary information (reports, statistics, etc.);

c)     Critically assess indicators of sustainable development and the potentials and limits of tourism to generate alternative livelihoods, promote cultural creativity, preserve heritage sites and facilitate intercultural dialogue or the promotion of cultures of peace;

d)     Mediate between global/national heritage policies, and context-specific national/regional/local development objectives.

When, Where?

The module is taught over a period of 16 weeks. The teaching will start in the week beginning on 26 Sept 2011 and end on 28 Jan 2012. It will take place on Saturdays between 10h and 13h at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities campus of New University of Lisbon (Avenida de Berna 26C, 1069-061 Lisbon, Portugal). Please enquire about the exact room.

Why World Heritage Matters

Promoting a cosmopolitan ethics of world citizenship, UNESCO’s World Heritage programme currently represents one of the most powerful and also most successful normative actions in international cultural policy making. Initially motivated by concerns about the destruction of specific sites, the programme has today emancipated itself as a tool for development, nation building and the promotion of peace and intercultural dialogue. The sustainable management of tourism in world heritage sites plays here an important role. It has, on the one hand, the potential to generate the necessary economic resources to make the exploitation of sites viable. On the other hand, it generates a transnational public sphere enabling processes of intercultural contact and learning, and the display of cultural identity.

UNITWIN Network Culture Tourism Development

The module is accredited by the UNESCO-UNITWIN network “Culture Tourism Sustainable Development” chaired by the Institute of Advanced Research and Studies on Tourism (IREST), University of Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne, France. In addition to 10 European Transfer Credits (ECTS), successful candidates will receive a UNESCO-UNITWIN certificate.

Conference: The Magic of Other in Tourism and Travel: A Live Stream Skype Video conference (17 Sept 2011, 13:00-15:22)

Moving on from the successful event in Lisbon last year, the Tourism Contact Culture Research Network is about to organise an open access Live Stream Skype Video conference, on the theme of “The Magic of Other in Tourism and Travel”. Presenters from various places around the world will use skype video which will be put into a conference and live streamed.

You can follow the event online and participate in the discussions – without even having to leave your sofa! All you need is an internet connection and a computer.

 

Public Live Broadcast at 17 September 2011, 13h-15:22h (Central European Time) followed by online discussion.

http://www.livestream.com/tococu

 

In analogy to ritual practices observed by anthropologists in various parts of the world invoking and renewing the mythical groundings of social life in society, modern tourists seem to find a mythical alter ego in spaces and people morally and ontologically removed from everyday life. These ‘Others’ which variable appear in form of exotic people, distanced pasts, and sublime natures do a priori not exist per se, but are contextually and situationally configured through tourism and the societal realms from which tourism emanates. What are the stories, mythical worlds and powers evoked and brought alive by these Others? How do they inform, or translate into, tourist practice and the development of attractions? What moral orders do they imply? What social relations, and what forms of society does tourist practice induce at a wider scale?

 

The conference aims to explore the relations between Self and Other in the specific intersubjective field of tourism. Self and Other are considered here in a dynamic and processual way, as co-constitutive entities that delineate and reappropriate, colonize and bewitch each other; that posses, inhabit and ultimately maintain each other. Magic represents a central overarching concept. It is used in a phenomenological perspective, as a (culturally/historically informed) means for social actors to make sense of specific qualities or powers ascribed to social ‘Others’, able to effect reality. While the workshop engages with the anthropological literature on magic, it inverses its classical anthropological and common sense signification: magic is not within exotic or marginal people or places, but within modernity from which the concept originally emanated and through which it continues to shape ideas and forms others – precisely as “magical”.

 

PRESENTATION FORMAT AND TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

The conference builds on outcomes of the international conference, Tourism and Seductions of Difference, held in Lisbon, Portugal in September 2010. Each speaker will give a short 10 minute presentation exploring a particular realm of Other that emerges in the field of tourism practice. The papers will focus on the central narratives defining such realms and the means by which these are mobilized in actual tourism practice (e.g. through architecture, itineraries, objects, food, staged performances, theatrical invocations, bodily immersion, the acquisition of souvenirs, talking, etc.).

 

The conference will take place within the virtual space of a Skype video conference live streamed at http://www.livestream.com/tococu. At a technical level, speakers will be added to a Skype Video Conference and present their papers online. Speakers need to add TOCOCU to their Skype contact list (by 13 Sept at the latest). They will need a webcam and headphones (to avoid sound problems). Questions and answers will be managed through the chat facility of the live streaming web page. Anyone who wishes to participate in the Questions and Answer session needs to create a chat name at the live stream webpage (takes 1 minute to do). The discussion will continue at the Open Anthropology page of the Tourism Contact Culture Research Network. The conference will be recorded and be made available for further views. It is open access.

 

ORGANIZERS

The event is organized by the Tourism Contact Culture Research Network (TOCOCU). More information can be found at the TOCOCU website, www.tourismcontactculture.org.uk.
