      Conference announcement and Call for Papers

      Tourism & Photography: Still Visions - Changing Lives
      An international conference

      20-23 July 2003
      Sheffield Hallam University

      Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change and School of Cultural Studies at SHU invites submissions for its 2003 Tourism & Photography conference. The aim of the conference is to explore the tourism-photography relationship from different disciplinary perspectives. Why do tourists take photos of certain things and not of others? Why do tourists take photos at all? How do photos build places, how do they change places and shape lives? How are photos used to define people and territories? How do locals negotiate photographic images of themselves? Themes of interest to the conference include:

      - Through the Lens: Camera - Tourist Relationships
      - Photographic Pioneers in the Evolution of Tourist Destinations
      - Inventing and Re-inventing Landscapes for Tourism
      - Photography in Destination Marketing Strategy
      - Framing Beauty for Visitors
      - Commercial Photography and the Tourist Brochure
      - Photographs as Triggers for Tourist Memory
      - Representing Places, Peoples and Pasts
      - Negotiating Cultural Identity
      - Resisting the Captured Image

      Contributions to explore the relationship of tourism and photography are welcome from a variety of disciplines including art history, photography, media studies, tourism marketing & planning, sociology, anthropology, history, aesthetics, psychology, geography, political sciences, landscape theory, etc. Please send abstracts (300 words) along with your full name & postal / electronic address by 15st April 2003 to d.picard@.... You can also contact me at the same address for any further information.

      Yours sincerely,
