Tourism and Hospitality Track
The tourism and hospitality track of this conference aims to examine emerging paradigms and innovative practices within the broader tourism and hospitality field. We are seeking papers that employ research methods and/or engage theoretically with the subject area. The objective is to present work that is transformative and which embraces serious intellectual discussion. Scholarly endeavour that unearths nascent areas of academic study, or progressively questions existing paradigms and epistemological applications will be most welcome. This track will thus attempt to encourage alternative approaches within tourism and hospitality studies rather
than reproducing well-established empirical models and conceptual applications. The overall aim of this track is to present a new agenda for future research and theoretical exposition.
Chairs: Dr. Cody Morris Paris and Ms Lulu Baddar
Co-ordinator: Dr. Marcus L. Stephenson

- Tourism development, policy and planning (including community development)
- Tourism, citizenship and mobility: the rights and responsibilities of tourists
