    Call for Papers - AAG, Los Angeles - 9-13 April, 2013 

    The Phenomenon of Ethnic Tourism in Europe

    This is the call for papers that address the developing niche market of ethnic tourism, or what is also referred to as roots tourism, genealogical tourism or diaspora tourism. The phenomenon consists of return visits by emigrants (and/or their descendants) to the country of their ancestors. Due to specific characteristics, researchers have designated this type of tourism as a separate segment under the topic of heritage tourism. Due to the fact that almost every European country has its diaspora living outside of the country's borders, the potential for expansion of this type of tourism is great.

    Organizers of the session are especially interested in papers that focus on good/bad practice examples in the field of European ethnic tourism, explore the economic and social impacts of ethnic or roots tourism on receiving countries (or families), or identify and discuss the types of destinations (families, home towns, religious places, cultural/historic sites) that attract this specific type of tourist population.

    Deadline: September 21, 2012 - Please send proposed titles and abstracts of up to 250 words to: Miha Koderman (miha.koderman@...)

    Best regards from Slovenia,
    Miha Koderman, PhD, assistant
    Department of Geography
    Faculty of humanities
    University of Primorska
    Titov trg 5
    6000 Koper/Capodistria
