Just over a decade ago, Dana Phillips (in)famously attacked ecocritics for uncritically borrowing terms and ideas from the discipline of ecology, which, he argued, is itself a "less than fully coherent field with a very checked past and fairly uncertain future." While controversial, Phillips's critique sparked important discussions about ecocriticism's methodology, especially its claim to interdisciplinarity. So-called "second wave" ecocritics reexamined the field's founding assumptions; a period of self-assessment propelled ecocriticism toward a more rigorous engagement with the sciences as well as the humanities.

Etymologically, vulnerability refers to a "wound" (from the Latin vulnus, vulneris). Somebody is said to be vulnerable when they have been wounded, injured, hurt or harmed. Or indeed when they are in a state of greater weakness, more fragile, and therefore more easily wounded, injured, hurt or harmed. Vulnerability can be physical, moral and social. An individual, a group, a community, even a country can be vulnerable.

According to the OED, the word tourism enters the English lexicon at the dawn of the nineteenth century, thus institutionalizing the notion that travel is a necessary component of personal development. As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.
