[ecrea] CFP: The Production of Location

Sat Mar 10 11:33:08 GMT 2018

_Call for Papers:_

*The Production of Location*

The Eighth International Tourism and Media (ITAM) Conference

University of Liverpool, 5-7 July 2018

/*Added/: Keynote from the Liverpool Film Office and tour of Liverpool film & TV locations*

    The eighth ITAM conference aim is to continue the network’s
    exploration of new ideas and debates sprung from the intersection
    between tourism industries and practices and those that broadly
    relate to the fields of media and communication. In this vein, the
    conference will aim to provide a forum where, taking their lead from
    Rodanthi Tzanelli’s concept of ‘global sign industries’ (2007),
    interdisciplinary research conversations gather pace around what are
    increasingly convergent fields of study and practice. While trends
    in scholarship on tourism and media are often reflective of discreet
    disciplinary dispositions, particularly those linked to perspectives
    in marketing and business, the necessarily open and ‘undisciplined’
    terrain that defines the critical landscapes of media and tourism
    today demands a similarly open and undisciplined approach to keep
    pace with what is an ever-shifting and multi-stranded field of study.

    The overarching theme of this conference is /The Production of
    Location/ and we invite contributions that critically addresses
    questions of cultural brokerage in media tourism whilst continuing
    to welcome submissions from the inter- and cross-disciplinary
    traffic that informs the research on media and tourism and addresses
    a range of topics pertinent to both areas.
