LASA 2016

Call for panellists LASA 2016, New York, May 27-30, 2016
  “Environment” as a normative system: ecotourism and gender
Organisers: Eveline Dürr (LMU, Munich) and Saskia Walther (LMU, Munich)

We invite papers for a panel at the 50th LASA Conference 2016 held in 
New York, May 27-30. The panel will focus on gender-specific 
transformations of environmental practices in rural contexts of Latin 
America that come along with touristic processes. Latin America is a 
prime destination of so called ecotourism, which is the fastest growing 
branch of the tourism industry worldwide, a fact that reflects the 
prominence of “nature” as a tourist attraction. Ecotourism has recently 
been declared to be the tool for sustainable development, including 
environmental protection and gender empowerment.
Though a gendered perspective on (eco)tourism and environment has 
emerged in recent academic debates, the focus is restricted primarily to 
women and the changes of employment and household patterns or, 
concerning the environment, to the greater vulnerability of women and 
their special role in environmental management and sustainable 
development (Agenda 21). Yet, ecotourism is also a global (regulatory) 
system, which brings along certain norms, values and understandings of 
the environment and of social, respectively gender relations. This 
raises numerous questions about the relationship of gender and the 
environment in touristic processes. From an anthropological angle, we 
are interested in how new practices and meanings referring to the 
environment are locally negotiated and assigned to gender roles – of 
both, women and men – thereby changing social relations, local 
environmental behaviour and cultural practices. Therefore, we invite 
empirically grounded papers on case studies focussing on the 
gender-specific dynamics that come along with the (normative) ideas of 
the environment and “nature” in touristic processes in Latin America. 
Please send abstracts (max. 250w) by August 31st to Saskia Walther
