Paradigmatic Reflections and Looking Forward Chapter uri icon


  • 2016 by Emerald Group Publishing Limited. The chapters gathered in this volume under the title of Tourism Research Paradigms reflect the eclectic, multidisciplinary, and rich field of tourism studies that has been emerging over the past few decades. Contributors to this volume from the seminar-tribute to Jafar Jafari held in Mallorca in October 2013 range from anthropologists to sociologists and architecture/ heritage conservation, offering enriching perspectives and approaches, reflecting on the knowledge base being built in this young field of study, and debating on a range of issues and topics within it. This final chapter presents a series of reflections on the learnings and major insights presented in this volume. While not all of the conference chapters made it into this volume, the editors made a particular effort to include a couple of chapters that reflect the type of "other" discourses that are struggling to be heard. They stem from different cultural, educational, and linguistic backgrounds, as well as diverse research, methodological training, and geographic regions representing different voices, standpoints, and interdisciplinary perspectives.
