      Subject: Announcing a new journal from Channel View Publications: Journal of
      Tourism and Cultural Change
      Date: Wed, 02 Oct 2002 15:55:40 -0100
      From: Channel View Publications <news@...>

      Channel View Publications present the new journal:
      The Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change (JTCC)
      Editor in Chief: Prof. Mike Robinson, Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change,
      Sheffield Hallam University

      email: info@...

      The Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change (JTCC) is a peer-reviewed,
      transdisciplinary and transnational journal. It focuses on critically examining
      the relationships, tensions, representations, conflicts and possibilities that
      exist between tourism/travel and culture/cultures in an increasingly complex
      global context.

      The JTCC provides a forum for debate against the backdrop of local, regional,
      national and transnational understandings of identity and difference. Economic
      restructuring, recognitions of the cultural dimension of biodiversity and
      sustainable development, contests regarding the positive and negative impact of
      patterns of tourist behaviour on cultural diversity, and transcultural strivings
      - all provide an important focus for the JTCC.

      Global capitalism, in its myriad forms engages with multiple 'ways of being',
      generating new relationships , re-evaluating existing, and challenging ways of
      knowing and being. Tourists and the tourism industry continue to find inventive
      ways to commodify, transform, present/re-present and consume material culture.
      The JTCC seeks to widen and deepen understandings of such changing relationships
      and stimulate critical debate by:

      -Adopting a multidisciplinary approach

      -Encouraging deep and critical approaches to policy and practice

      -Embracing an inclusive definition of culture

      -Focusing on the concept, processes and meanings of change

      -Encouraging trans-national/transcultural perspectives
