Dear colleagues,
Due to several requests for extensions, the deadline for this special issue has now been extended to 20th March. All other timings remain unaffected.
CfPs for a special issue for the Journal of Sustainable Tourism (IF: 3.329).
Transport, Tourism and Environmental Crisis
Guest Editor: Dr Debbie Hopkins, University of Oxford, [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
This special issue seeks to examine the complex relationships between transport, tourism mobilities and environmental crises. Drawing from interdisciplinary thinking on risks, hazards, and crises, the special issue seeks wide-ranging contributions that uncover the socio-political, ethical, cultural, and spatial dimensions of environmental crises and their intersections with tourism. Such crises are diverse in scale, geographical, socio-cultural and economic impacts, system effects and more. This includes the often-reported and multi-directional connections between tourism mobilities and anthropogenic climate change, the effects of urban air pollution experienced by local populations but generated by tourism-related transport (including cruise ships, airplanes and other forms of motorised mobility), but also one-off events such as the high-profile eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland, which grounded flights across northern Europe, and the lasting impacts of the cataclysmic 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. The spatial and temporal impacts of these, and other - perhaps more localised events - and learning for future preparedness, hazard risk reduction, and for conceptualisations of the tourism sector and the tourists, are at the core of this special issue.
Yet more than this, specific, powerful and often-extreme events are seemingly becoming more frequent - one in a hundred-year storm events are occurring each decade; heatwaves are an annual occurrence; cyclones are increasingly ferocious. And these events are not equally experienced; often local-communities are hardest hit. Transport is intricately connected to these events as an inequal source of escape, precarity, opportunity and access. The physical infrastructures of transport (e.g. airports, roads, bridges) may be temporarily or permanently immobilised as a result of the crisis, or may enable evacuations. In this special issue, we problematise the role of tourism in environmental crises, with questions including, but not limited to:

  *   How does tourism contribute to, exacerbate, or elevate conditions in times of crisis (both short and long term)?
  *   What role(s) do tourists, tour operators, and other actors take in crisis events?
  *   What are the complex practices, motivations, experiences and geographies of disaster tourism and disaster tourists in post-crisis environments?
  *   Is disaster tourism a form of 'dark tourism' or does it take on a more productive role in some circumstances?
  *   How are frames of 'victims' and 'saviours' constructed through disaster narratives, and to what end?
We invite papers that engage with issues of transport, mobilities AND sustainable tourism, that detail the nuance and complex. We seek papers that move beyond hegemonic, global North perspectives, that challenge the status quo, and that seek meaningful and perhaps radical opportunities for tourism and sustainable development.
Expressions of interest in contributing a paper to this special issue are invited in the form of a working title and 750 word abstract of your proposed paper by 20 March 2019, to be submitted by e-mail to: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Abstracts should include paper title, authorship, author affiliation(s) and contact information (including the email addresses of all authors) and keywords (maximum six). Full papers will be invited following a review of submitted abstracts. Authors will be notified of the outcome no later than 29 March 2019.
The deadline for the submission of full papers will be 01 November 2019, for publication in 2020. All submissions will be subject to the journal's normal high standards of peer review. All accepted papers will be published online without delay, with print publication of the special issue to follow.

With very best wishes
Debbie
