Emotion in Motion
Tourism, Affect and TransformationeBook - 2012
While many books have engaged with the structural frames of tourist practice and experience, this is the first to deal with the emotional dimensions of tourism. International scholars from a range of disciplines have come together to explore how the movement to, and through, the realms of exotic people, wild natures, subliminal art, spirit worlds, metropolitan cities and sexualised 'others' variably provoke emotions, peak experiences, travel syndromes and inner dialogues. The authors show how tourism challenges us to engage with concepts of self, other, time, nature, sex, the body and death.
