A Research Agenda for Tourism Geographies

Elgar Research Agendas

Edited by Dieter K. Müller, Department of Geography, Umeå University, Sweden

In recent years, tourism geographies have developed into a vibrant field of research at the intersection of geography and tourism studies. The book presents a unique collection of individual research agendas aiming to inspire the pursuit of new avenues of research. Although there have been arguments to apply post-disciplinary perspectives within tourism research, this book highlights the interest and potential of tourism geographers to contribute to a geographical tradition and influence the future content of geography as a discipline.

‘A Research Agenda for Tourism Geographies brings together a global group of tourism geography scholars presenting insightful thoughts on many of the cutting-edge issues that our subfield of study is attempting to address today. Together they provide a foundation for moving tourism geography into the future.’
– Alan A. Lew, Northern Arizona University, US

‘Müller's accessible and timely volume takes a bold step closer to keeping pace with the constantly evolving sub-discipline of tourism geographies, unafraid to challenge earlier foundations and keen to prioritise academic diversity and real-world contexts. The contributors’ flair, perspective and passion comes across throughout what is arguably the ideal backdrop for shaping future research agendas in the field.’
– Julie Wilson, Open University of Catalonia, Spain

‘Dieter Müller has successfully coordinated an international assembly of contributors who offer insightful new perspectives on tourism geography’s evolution and future research agendas. The volume provides an excellent resource for tourism geographers to consider the position of their research with respect to the discipline of geography and the interdisciplinary arena of tourism studies.’
– Alison Gill, Simon Fraser University, Canada

‘In a world characterised by rapid and radical change, this book sets out an ambitious future for a subject that will have increasing international importance in the years to come.’
– Tim Coles, University of Exeter, UK
