The Lit&Tour: International Conference on Literature and Tourism will be hosted by the Centre for Comparative Studies of the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lisbon, in collaboration with the School of Management, Hospitality and Tourism of the University of the Algarve. The theme of the Conference is the relationship between literature and tourism. The Conference will focus on the various forms and approaches of this relationship.
The last three decades have been fruitful in studies and publications on travel literature. The relationship between literature and tourism has not, however, been the target of an intensive and systematic study.
