Greetings from Palma: Conference Review

Abstract [en]

There I was sitting on my Airport-hotel-room’s balcony, gathering sunbeams and breathing warm Mallorca air. I had the world’s biggest smile on my face: it felt almost surreal to be on this island for a tourism conference. I had lived here eleven years ago when I studied tourism at The University of the Balearic Islands and worked at a hotel by the Palmanova beach. Well, it merits mention that during that time I did not only fall in love with Palma and the entire island, but also with a fellow exchange-student from Sweden. What else could I have done but smile; I was back in amazing Mallorca, reading the 7th Critical Tourism Studies’ (CTS) conference programme and getting more and more excited about the forthcoming four days of conferencing.

CTS is a conference that welcomes an international community of scholars that ‘shares a vision of producing and promoting social change in and through tourism practice, research and education’. It has been organized biannually since 2005 and the conference is currently expanding in numbers of participants and through new conferences organized in Asia-Pacific region (March 2018 in Yogyakarta) and in North America (August 2018 in Kamloops). Conferences, publications and discussions connected to CTS have focused on enriching and accelerating the reflexive and critical turn in tourism studies. Scholars here can be seen to share a somewhat common background in critical schools of thought and concern with issues of inequality, injustice and responsibility in tourism contexts (Ateljevic et al. 2005; Pritchard et al. 2011).
