ATLAS annual conference 2013
Environments of Exchange: Leisure and Tourism
November 6 - 8, 2013, Malta
The deadline for submitting papers for this conference has been extended to July 15th 2013
The 2013 ATLAS Conference in Malta will explore leisure and tourism as an environment of exchange. Leisure and tourism have become major arenas in which exchange of ideas and different forms of value (economic, social, and cultural) can take place. The conference will discuss issues of exchange in and through tourism and leisure in all it forms and settings.
This conference theme is inspired by the fact that in 2018 Valletta (Malta) will be European Capital of Culture, a project labelled as V.18. Malta is now mapping out the way forward towards implementation of their plans for attaining excellence and inclusion through a creative, innovative and dynamic programme. The 2013 ATLAS conference is informed by the objectives and the 4 central themes of V.18 (Generations, Islands, Routes and Cities) and will be an important step in this process as it tries to imagine and discuss the role of leisure and tourism in the creation of conditions for different types of exchange.
