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'.
