Call For Papers

Touring in terms of travel, tourism or varying aspects of mobilities contribute substantially to particular conventions and rituals of consumer practices, especially with an eye towards the enactment of scripts. However, touring consumption delineates a kind of performance that is not only reproduced, but is productive and emergent in its own right. Hence, the more traditional conceptions of tourist, pilgrim, vagabond, refugee, expatriate, international student or business traveler are becoming more and more diffused with notions of what are considered local, regular or insider, and need to be re-examined in the light of a differentiated, complex and individualized everyday perspective. On the other hand, it is as important to consider a touristification of society in which touring as an everyday metaphor can be used to encapsulate new forms of mobilities as societal, economic, consumptive or scientific phenomena.

During the conference, we wish to engage ‘Touring Consumption’ through interdisciplinary and cross-methodological approaches that collapse the poles of materialities and discourses, exteriority and interiority, body and mind, interpretation and meaning, presence and representation, ethics and aesthetics, and form and performance.
