Travel and Tourism Studies continues to gain popularity as an academic field, in part because of its inter-disciplinary nature. The Travel and Tourism area seeks papers that explore and discuss any aspect of travel and tourism. Topics for this area include, but are not limited to, the following:
- heritage tourism
- travel and gender/race/class
- material culture and tourism
- writing travel
- spatial relations and tourism
- politics and tourism
- personal travel narratives

To submit a proposal, please send a 200-word abstract and a brief CV/bio by June 15. 2011. Undergraduates and independent scholars are welcome; panels of 3 or 4 presenters, single papers, roundtables, or alternative formats are encouraged.

*Please note: Presenters may only present 1 paper; please do not submit multiple papers to multiple areas of MAPACA*
