TOURISM AND PERFORMANCE: 

SCRIPTS, STAGES AND STORIES

2005 Tourism and Cultural Change Research Conference

Sheffield, United Kingdom, 14-18 July 2005

TOURISM AND PERFORMANCE: SCRIPTS, STAGES AND STORIES is an international research conference organised by the Centre for Tourism
and Cultural Change, Sheffield Hallam University, United Kingdom. The extended deadline for this CFP is 1 May 2005; late abstracts
may be accepted. Due to lower venue costs, we have been able to reconsider the registration fees, and offer a student rate. 

CONTEXT AND AIMS
Performance has been theorised as a way by which human beings act in society and organise their being in the world. In the context
of tourism, there is much debate regarding the idea of tourists as performers, 'acting out' spaces, and enacting 'scripts',
through which they organise and add meaning to their experiences and journeys. Tourism in this sense can be seen to be 'staged'.
But such perspectives raise a number of questions regarding the reflexivity, the hermeneutics, the sensual and aesthetic
modalities, the social interactions and the political economy of tourist performance: How is individual tourist performance linked
to socially prescribed or learnt models regarding tourism behaviour and spaces? How are spaces and material culture 'enacted' by
and for tourists? What are the production and consumption modalities of in situ and in visu stages for tourism performance? How is
tourism performance linked to modes of touristic social interaction during the journey? What roles do stories play in generating
performativity and in liberating tourists from the acts of travel and tourism? The aim of this conference is to explore such
questions by drawing on the methodological and conceptual knowledge of different disciplinary perspectives including those of:
tourism studies, anthropology, sociology, history, cultural studies, folkloric studies, literature, critical theory, linguistics,
human/cultural geography, psychology, theatre studies and other relevant approaches. 

THEMES
Key themes of interest to the conference include:

- Who is cooking who? Tourism consumption, digestion, and excretion 
- Hermeneutics, reflexivity and agency: Tourism as a parable of the social world
- Eden, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Solitary Wanderer, the Golden Fleece: Archaeologies of tourist imaginary and performance
- Odour, sound, vision, taste - making sense of the senses: cognitive categories and perceptive processes in tourism experience 
- Objects as props - objects as texts
- Staging, eroticising, and making visible: Translations, adaptations, and variations of the 'cultural'
- Reconsidering the economic in tourism: Transnational spaces of encounter, production and exchange
- Political and symbolic manipulation of tourism scripts
- 'Losing the plot': Tourism lost in translation
 
PLENARY SESSIONS
Prof Edward Bruner from the University of Illinois, USA will give a plenary speech on 'Experience, Narrative and Memory in
Tourism'.
