IRFGT Call for papers

3rd International Research Forum on Guided Tours - 4, 5 and 6 APRIL 2013
 
NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences, Breda, the Netherlands 

In the midst of an economic crisis which is showing little prospect of
abating, a continuous stream of new mobile technologies, consumers wanting to
co-create their own 'experiences' and a steadily rising demand for 'greenish'
products, we are asking ourselves: how is all this affecting the guided tour?


Are mobile technologies and location based services making the 'human guide'
superfluous? Or are we looking at the future of guided tours here, with
guides using these technologies to make their tours more 'experiential'? Are
guided tours the new, mobile performances then? And what about the changing
tourist: older, from rapidly expanding economies? How are guides and
education institutes preparing for these developments? Will the economic
crisis lead to less consumption and greener guided tours? And then there is
the guided tour as a metaphor for exploring ideas across a wide range of
disciplinary and theoretical perspectives.. 

Guided tours, in short, are a multi-facetted phenomenon which we hope to
further explore at the 3rd International Research Forum on Guided Tours. We
invite researchers, postgraduate students, educators and practitioners to
submit papers concerning guiding, being guided, alternative forms of guiding
and/or addressing the relation between guided tours and theories of mobility,
arts and media, economics and politics. We welcome papers that refer to, but
are not limited to, themes such as: 

. mobile technologies and personalized guided tours 
. (im)mobility in performative guided tours 
. tour guides as constructors of the tourist 'gaze' 
. the transformational potentiality of sustainable guided tours 
. tour guides, facts and fiction and interpretations of heritage 
. guided tours in virtual reality 
. ethics of guided tours to 'authentic areas' such as slums 
. social media, tourists and tour guides 
. the contribution of tour guides to destination image 
. certification and quality assurance in guided tours 
. guiding without words 
. tour guides and emotional intelligence 
. alternative (understandings of) guided tours 
. co-creating experiences in guided tours 
. intercultural dimensions of tour guiding
