      Final abstract deadline 31st January


      Responsible Geographies

      5th Nordic Geographers’ Meeting

      University of Iceland, Reykjavík

      11th – 14th June 2013.


      Controversial geographies of tourism


      Call for abstracts


      This session focuses on the geographies of tourism in a Nordic context. More specifically the focus is on the manifestations of controversy in Nordic tourism development. Controversy is probably the norm of tourism development, and most certainly underpins much of its geography. Controversies provide opportunities to study the social world and its making and are tantamount to studying the geographies of tourism. On this basis, the session invites papers investigating and understanding various controversies related to tourism mobilities, geographies of production and consumption of tourism and issues of sustainability in tourism. Under these broad thematic headings roughly centred on flows sustaining tourism and the destination, the session is intended to be wide ranging in scope. The aim is to subdivide papers submitted to this session according to emerging themes in two distinct strands, one being on destination development and the other on tourism mobilities. The undertow of both strands is how mobilities and destinations are resilient in the face of change and risks and how these can be managed in just and responsible ways.    


      If you are interested in submitting an abstract to this session, please make it no longer than 250 words and upload it before 31st January 2013 through the following link: http://conference.hi.is/ngm2013/controversial-geographies-of-tourism/ or e-mail to either:
