This book makes an explicit linkage between empirical and theoretical perspectives on tourism and discourse. A broad social semiotic approach is adopted to analyse a range of spoken, written and visual texts, providing a unique resource for researching and teaching tourism in the context of communication studies. The contributors are key sociologists of tourism as well as discourse analysts and sociolinguists, including: Irena Ateljevic, Hywel Bishop, Nikolas Coupland, Kelly Davidson, Stephen Doorne, David Dunn, Peter Garrett, Adam Jaworski, Chris Kennedy, Sarah Lawson, Nigel Morgan, Camille C. OReilly, Uta Papen, Annette Pritchard and John Urry. Some of the key concepts explored include space, representation, the tourist experience, identity, performance and authenticity.
