      3rd Call for Abstracts: Proposed Paper Session for the AAG Los Angeles (9-13 April 2013)

      Lifestyle Migrants & Destination Communities

      Modern lifestyle migration is a form mobility emerging in the context of rapid globalization. It comes in many forms, including retirement migration, second-home tourism, international students, and amenity-seeking migrants and seasonality migrants. These new types of migrants differ from the traditional tourists and economic migrants in their relationships with home and away, their motivations to move, and their economic impacts on destinations. This session focuses on topics concerning the connections between lifestyle migrants and destination communities. Examples of appropriate topics include the motivations, trajectories and experiences of different kinds of lifestyle migrants, and the dynamics and patterns of integration of lifestyle migrants into destination communities in aspects including (but not limit to) economic, cultural, social, residential, and identity aspects of place. Planning and policy implications for destinations of these new types of migrants are also covered in this session.

      If you are interested in participating in this session, please submit a copy of your abstract to Prof. Xu Honggang <xuhongg@...> and Dr. Xing Wei <w.xing@...>.  You will need to submit your abstract on the AAG website before 14 October 2012.
