Tourism Communication, Representation and Mediation Between East and West
Editors: Donatella Dolcini & Rana P.B. Singh
Today not only is tourism an extremely important economic resource for many countries, but it also represents an extraordinary opportunity for mediation between languages, cultures and civilizations, both in terms of individual experience and on a systemic and institutional level, being a site of exchanges and encounters. Given that occasions of mediation are all the more meaningful the greater the geographical and anthropological distance between the places and the communities involved, of special interest are representations of the West and its manifold territories and cultures addressed to the emerging sector of Asian tourism and, symmetrically, representations of Eastern landscapes and civilizations for the benefit of the Western tourist.
In light of the unprecedented expansion of tourist flows between East and West, also resulting from the opening of the big tourist markets of India and China, issue nr.2 of LCM is open to contributions that explore the strategies of mediation enacted in this sector to communicate and represent places, cultures and civilizations in various forms of discourse - traditional, multimodal and digital - deployed in tourism activities and in travel literature: tourist guides, texts for destination promotion (fliers, brochures, advertising campaigns), newspaper and magazine articles, documentary films and movies, literary works, websites, blogs and travel journals. Especially welcome are research works that investigate communication about and representation of Europe and other countries in tourist communication aimed at Asian audiences (e.g. India, Pakistan, China, Middle East) as well as studies focusing on the representation of Asia in tourist communication addressed to Western markets.
