Que(e)rying Gender and Tourism Research

Call For Papers: RGS-IBG Annual Conference, London, 29th August -1st September 2017.

Eveleigh Buck-Matthews, Coventry University
Dr Jaeyon Choe, Bournemouth University
Dr Claudia Eger, University of Warwick
Heather Jeffrey, University of Bedfordshire
Dr Caroline Scarles, University of Surrey

Sponsored by the Geographies of Leisure and Tourism Research Group (GLTRG) and the Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group (GFGRG)

There is a growing body of knowledge concerned with gender and tourism, but still many voices remain unheard. Feminists are as varied as the subjectivities they so often research, but are joined together within a common emancipatory project. Queer theory can aid in an emancipatory project by destabilising foundational assumptions of normality (de Souza, Brewis & Rumens, 2016; Rumens & Tyler, 2016), and yet it has received little attention from tourism scholars. This session is designed to engage participants in a critical conversation on gender and feminism within tourism, hospitality and events research, to explore contentious issues among feminists and pave the way for collaboration. Papers concerning any aspect of gender within tourism, hospitality and events research are invited, as well as papers investigating multiple voices and perspectives within gender and tourism, which may relate to but not be confined by the following areas:

* Female hosts as guests and the reification of roles
* Masculinities in tourism, hospitality, and events
* LGBTQ voices in tourism, hospitality, and events
* Casual/precarious gendered workers
* Postcolonial feminism and subaltern studies in tourism
* Insights from queer theory for gender and tourism
* Feminist theory and practice

We are currently seeking contributions for a paper presentation session involving five presentations each lasting around 15 minutes with time for questions. The presentation may be executed in a traditional or innovative style, and we actively encourage a wide range of styles; including snapshots and pechakucha.
Please send abstracts (approx. 250 words) with author contact details to Heather Jeffrey (heather.jeffrey@beds.ac.uk) by the 1st February 2017.
