Panel title:
Anthropologies of tourism: An epistemological reality or mere wishful thinking?
Panel short abstract:
Inspired by the world anthropologies framework, this panel reflects on variously situated theoretical and/or methodological anthropological takes on tourism, including key concepts that are being developed and used across the world to make sense of tourism in all its complexity.

Panel keywords:
epistemology, methodology, theory,tourism, World anthropologies
Panel Text:

The idea of world anthropologies was developed to remind anthropologists of the plural landscape of anthropological knowledge production. Arturo Escobar describes world anthropologies as an approach intended to de-essentialize anthropology and to pluralize anthropological inquiry by building on non-hegemonic anthropological practices. Indeed, the world anthropologies framework is deeply influenced by the awareness of hierarchical relations in knowledge production marked by the historical construction of canons of expertise established by the anthropological powers and authorities that be. Inspired by this perspective, this panel aims to explore critically how various anthropological traditions from around the globe are contributing (if at all) to our understanding of tourism, making it justified to speak of anthropologies (plural) of tourism instead of a unified (mostly western-dominated) anthropology of tourism canon. In 2015, for example, the Spanish journal Pasos published a special issue that gave an overview of anthropologies of tourism ‘from the South’. Instead of presenting a loose assemblage of case studies, each paper in this panel reflects on variously situated theoretical and/or methodological anthropological takes on tourism, including key concepts that are being developed and used across the world to make sense of tourism in all its complexity.
