Dr. Jaeyeon Choe in Faculty of Management published a special issue ‘Gender and Mobility in Tourism’ in Tourism Review (Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Bubalis) with co-editor, Dr. Cristopher Livecchi – Dept. of Geography at State University of New York. The papers in this special issue demonstrate thought provoking, critically diverse, and interdisciplinary perspectives on Gender and Mobility in Tourism.
The dearth of interdisciplinary work in this area has resulted in underdeveloped processes and methods of theorisation. In light of these factors, the primary aim of this special issue is to review the theories, theorisation processes and methods/methodology of gender studies in tourism by encouraging the incorporation of queer studies and intersectionality.
Secondly, this special issue begins to address how mobility and migration in a globalising world have affected gender issues in relation to tourism (Porter, 2011), and the implications of practices, politics and meanings of mobility for women. This special issue also addresses how mobilities and gender issues influence tourism research and practices.
The papers in this special issue explore (im)mobilities, migration, queerness, sustainability and cultural geographies of gender and tourism. The contributors to this issue hail from a variety of disciplines and consider various angles, topics, subjects and geographical locations including gender and migrants, a new conceptualisation of guest-host, tourism in Asian and Latin American contexts, intersectional effects of gender and race, queer studies and sex tourism.
