      Call for Abstracts for the AAG Annual Meeting - Seattle, WA

      Tourism Geographies, ‘Sustainabilities’ and Global Change

      Joint sponsored session by the AAG Recreation, Tourism and Sport Specialty Group and the IGU Commission on the Geography of Tourism, Leisure and Global Change

      Global change, driven by both environmental and social geography, has emerged as a major discussion in tourism studies and geographies. It has links to the idea sustainable tourism with complex views on the relation between growth and development in local-global nexus. This complexity also involves the current discussion on degrowth referring to the downscaling of production and consumption, including tourism sector.

      Global change affects the basis of the socio-spatial system and flows in tourism through different sets of ecological, social, cultural, economic and political transformations, for example. On the other hand tourism is also a major contributor to global change. This session aims to discuss global change and its impacts on tourism, and the role of tourism in global environmental and social change. The session invites papers focusing on the broad area of tourism geographies and mobilities in the context of global change.

      Session organizers: Jarkko Saarinen <jarkko.saarinen@...> and Alan A. Lew <alan.lew@...>
