        RTS session on Indigenous Tourism, AAG Annual Meeting March 22-27, 2009
        Las Vegas

        We are delighted to announce this call for papers for the RTS-sponsored
        session on indigenous tourism:

        Session Description:

        As indigenous people are impacted by global tourism, they often employ
        various techniques in dealing with tourism’s pressures. Subsequent
        strategies range from avoidance to engagement and this session will
        address these issues on local, regional, national and international
        levels. Papers
        will explore the paradoxes, issues and dilemmas confronting both
        indigenous people and the tourism industry.

        Topics might include:
        Aboriginal control of tourism; development in local communities;
        cultural preservation; indigenous people involvement in tourism;
        co-management of tourism resources
        national implications

        Please contact any of the two co-organizers listed below. Abstract
        submission deadline is October 16, 2009:

          Call for Papers, Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers (AAG), Las Vegas, Nevada, March 22-27, 2009

          Tourism and Retirement Migration: Destinations in Transition

          Organizer: David Truly, Central Connecticut State University

          Tourism and retirement migration has had significant impacts on communities and countries throughout the world, as destinations continue to adapt to the needs and expectations of aging tourists and retirees. Amenity migration has fueled some of this growth but a variety of other factors and motivations can be credited for changes in tourism and retirement migration. While these migration streams offer benefits for many destinations, the challenge of addressing the needs of both hosts and guests and the impacts of development can be significant. This session invites case studies and theoretical studies that examine any aspect of this topic. Possible topics could include:

          - Amenity migration and tourism/retirement
          - Second Home Development
          - Linkages between tourism and retirement
          - Impacts of tourism/retirement migration on destinations

          Please send an abstract to David Truly (trulyd@...) by October 10, 2008.

          Details on the conference and the registration process can be found at www.aag.org.
