Nos próximos dias estarei por aqui. Um congresso académico sobre turismo, sedução e diferença com uma diversidade programática considerável e que vale um olhar mais atento.
Se tiver algum tempo colocarei por aqui algumas ideias por lá debatidas, sendo que no domingo apresentarei eu mesmo um trabalho sobre as espacialidades de casais turistas lésbicos e gays na cidade de Lisboa.
Aqui fica o resumo (peço desculpa pelo inglês)

Cartographies of Seduction and Spatiality’s of Queer Tourism in Lisbon
Contemporary changes on leisure and tourism are mainly focused on building market fragmentation, (re) creating niche tourism that seem to come against the social dynamics of increasing individualization of the enjoyment of leisure time. The lesbian and gay tourism has been identified as a new element, with a particularly dynamic, contemporary changes in leisure in some cases questioning the modes of production and analysis of the tourism phenomenon.
Starting with an analysis, overall critical, we see the ways in case of Lisbon, the lesbian and gay tourism, although (almost) invisible in the programmes to promote the city, it is internationally important in tourist and economic development.
Facing the lack of quantitative data on this niche tourism in Lisbon analyzed, from the supply and promoting international discourse on the urban area of Lisbon present in numerous documentary sources scattered guides, magazines and websites. In this speech the city of Lisbon is thus a cosmopolitan and welcoming space, marked by a growing modernity within a Catholic country.
Furthermore this test is based on a ethnographic study on spatialities lesbians and gays in the city of Lisbon where we start from the participant- observation with international tourists in the city of Lisbon. We will devote particular attention to expression and discourses of queer spatiality in Lisbon, as well as the modes of consumption and appropriation of urban space in the city by the lesbian and gay tourist population.
