Short Abstract

This panel explores anthropological approaches to the interrelationship between
tourism, embodiment and the senses.

Long Abstract

Embodiment is a significant and ever developing area of study in social
anthropology. Of particular interest to anthropologists is the relationship between
embodiment and tourism. Indeed, the interrelations between tourism, tourist
practices and embodiment have grown in significance in terms of their contribution
to the field of tourism anthropology to the extent that they are now of central
importance to the study of the subject. Notions of an experience economy and the
engagement of the senses in various aspects of touristic interpretation and
encounters indicate the importance of informed discussion about embodiment to the
tourism and leisure sectors. The idea of embodiment encompasses a number of key
areas of both scholarly activity and touristic practice, some with significant
theoretical lineage in the social sciences and humanities in general and in social
anthropology in particular. These include, but are not limited to: performance, the
body, gender, identities and experience. Such facets of embodiment are applicable to
the wide range of both traditional and emergent tourist activities including, for
example, charter and package tourism, backpacker tourism, cultural tourism as well
as activities within these, for example music and arts festivals, food and wine
tourism, sports tourism, rituals, pilgrimages and other sites of touristic practice.
To this end this panel invites papers that consider any aspect of the social
anthropology of tourism, embodiment and the senses.
