I would be interested in joining such a session.  My research has been on community-based tourism in rural Vietnam, but I have not yet decided what my paper will address.

 "Is anybody organizing a session on tourism-related topics such as
 residents' responses to the impact of tourism or the development of
 heritage tourism? I would like to join a session being organized for the
 next AAA in San Francisco with a paper reporting on research being done
 in Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. One possible paper would be a
 report based on qualitative and quantitative research of residents'
 responses to the quickly developing tourism program, covering their
 perception of tourisms' impacts (social, cultural ecological, and
 economic) on the island archepelago. The other possible paper would
 concern efforts to market the islands as more than a sun, sand, and sea
 destination with the development of heritage offerings. Please contact
