      Apologies for cross postings

      Call for presentations, 2013 meeting of Association of American Geographers, Los Angeles, California

      Session Title: Methodologies in Social Memory and Heritage Tourism Research

      Session Organizers:
      David Butler, The University of Southern Mississippi,
      Derek H. Alderman, University of Tennessee-Knoxville,
      Perry Carter, Texas Tech University,
      Arnold Modlin, Norfolk State University

      Session Description: The examination of social memory and heritage tourism has grown considerably over the past few decades, both inside and outside the field of geography. Methodological innovation and reflection have accompanied theoretical advances in the study of memory and heritage tourism.  Scholars continue to uncover new data sources and new methods (qualitative and quantitative) for analyzing the process and politics of remembering and touring the past through place.  Despite the increasing volume of research on these topics, there remains much scholarship to be completed and there is a need to create a forum for sharing methodological ideas in light of the ongoing re-conceptualization of what constitutes data and method in cultural and historical geography. We invite participation in a paper session for AAG 2013 that highlights the development and use of new, innovative methodologies; revisits and refines more established methodologies; and carries out a broader discussion of the role of methodology in the study of social memory and/or heritage tourism.  Papers might approach methods and methodology from a variety of perspectives and we are open to work that examines social memory both inside and outside the context of heritage tourism.  Possible paper topics include but are not restricted to:

      -primary data collection

      -new access to secondary data

      -new analysis of existing data

      -new scales of analysis

      -pictures and photos as data

      -archival data

      -video as data

      -mining internet data

      -from paper to electronic data

      -traditional methods, unique analysis

      -and many more….
