A Research Agenda for Gender and Tourism

About the eBook

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. Forward-looking and innovative, Elgar Research Agendas are an essential resource for PhD students, scholars and anybody who wants to be at the forefront of research.

Original and thought-provoking, this Research Agenda investigates the many ways in which tourism is gendered. It outlines current thought and directions for future research, looking forward by imagining and challenging the ways that gender will continue to intersect with and impact on tourism, as well as looking back to trace the key developments and contributions in gendered thinking.

Chapters consider and rethink gender in the context of tourism from multiple vantage points, contexts and perspectives. Divided into three parts, the Research Agenda reflects key threads in a contemporary research agenda: gender theory, analysis and review; gender, tourism and work; and gendered tourism experiences. Bringing together a range of diverse and inclusive contributions, it moves beyond binary assumptions of ‘women’ and ‘men’ towards the intersectionalities among gender, race, class, sexuality and power in relation to tourism.

Highlighting emerging research in the field, along with the methods and paradigms that are at the forefront of gendered tourism research, this Research Agenda will be an invigorating read for critical tourism researchers as well as gender researchers and those in the social sciences more broadly.
