Call for chapter proposals for a book titled ‘Travel, Tourism and Art’

Dear colleagues,

Apologies for cross-posting.

Below you will find a call for chapter proposals for a book titled ‘Travel, Tourism and Art’, edited by Dr Tijana Rakić and Dr Jo-Anne Lester  which some of you might find of interest.

Book Title:  Travel, Tourism and Art

Edited by:  Dr Tijana Rakić and Dr Jo-Anne Lester

Art, in its many forms, has long played an important role in people’s imagination, experience and remembrance of places, cultures and travels as well as in their motivation to travel. Travel and tourism, on the other hand, have also inspired artists and artworks. These fascinating relationships between travel, tourism and art encompass a wide range of phenomena. Drawing on historical contexts these include some of the eighteenth and nineteenth century travellers’ journeys made in order to experience works of art along with their literary travel writing, poetry, drawing and painting while away from home. Conversely, present-day travel inspired by art as well as artworks produced by contemporary travellers is also of interest. With its chief focus being the role of art and artwork in imagining, experiencing, representing and remembering places, cultures and travel/tourism experiences as well as the role of art in motivating travel, this edited volume aims to provide a space for an exploration of the complex relationships between travel, tourism and art. Themes which this edited volume aims to address include, but are not limited to:
§         art and its role in motivating both historical and contemporary travel and tourism
§         imagining, experiencing and/or remembering places through works of art
§         the role of travel and tourism in inspiring artists and/or artworks produced by travellers
§         representations of ‘touristic’ places, locals, travellers and tourists in artworks
This edited volume aims to include contributions from authors working within different disciplines and fields of study including geography, anthropology, sociology, arts, media and tourism studies to name just a few, ensuring in such a way the volume’s interdisciplinary relevance and contribution. In addition, the editors will encourage inclusions of studies related to a range of different locales widening the overall geographical relevance of the volume. 

Proposals for chapters should be sent to the editors in a form of an extended 500 word abstract accompanied by author(s) full contact details, affiliation(s) and 30 word short bio(s) by no later than the 15th December 2011.

Following the abstract review and selection process, the editors will submit the book proposal to the publishers and thereafter plan to invite contributors to submit their full-text (5,500-6,000 word) chapters by the end of August 2012.

For more details and to submit a chapter proposal, please email the editors:
