Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

This timely Research Agenda moves beyond classic approaches that consider the relationship between heritage and tourism either as problematic or as a factor for local development, and instead adopts an understanding of heritage and tourism as two reciprocally supported social phenomena that are co-produced.
 
Chapters draw on case studies from Europe, North America and Asia, offering important insights on heritage consumption, hypercommodification, war tourism, dissonant heritage, decolonizing heritage and the rising importance of the digital world of tourism. The book commences with a global overview on the changing paradigm of heritage tourism, before focusing on heritage and tourism at different scales and the impacts of globalization on heritagization. It also examines the political nature of tourism heritage construction and the experiential turn of heritage tourism practices.
 
An invigorating read for students and scholars of tourism and heritage studies, this book offers a multitude of suggestions for pathways for future research. It is also a timely read for those working with heritage sites and looking to better understand the intersection between heritage and tourism.
Critical Acclaim
‘The incomparable Maria Gravari-Barbas has brought together a multinational, multidisciplinary and multi-perspectival group of experts who push the boundaries of how we should approach the sometimes blurred intersections of heritage and tourism. A Research Agenda for Heritage Tourism will appeal to a diverse range of scholars and practitioners interested in issues such as sites’ tangibility and intangibility, impacts on diverse communities, race and politics, and new digital forms of heritage storytelling and consumption.’
– Michael A. Di Giovine, West Chester University, US

‘This is an incisive and exciting book under the leadership of Maria Gravari-Barbas, with her colleagues at IREST and other international and multidisciplinary authors. Examining cases from Asia, the Americas and Europe, they emphasize the ever-growing creation of new and old heritage at the behest of globalized post-colonial and post-communist tourism.’
– Nelson Graburn, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, US
