Tourism Theory and the Earth

Abstract [en]

Given that tourism is an “earthly business”, why is it that the Earth rarely explicitly appears in tourism studies and tourismtheory? In an attempt to grapple with this paradox, this paper seeks to contribute to a conceptual re-cognition of the Earth in tourismtheory by probing some theoretical obstacles and possibilities. The paper demonstrates how the Earth has been conceptually erased in tourismtheory by a privileging of the mapping of tourism and tourists onto the reference plane of the social. As an alternative the paper seeks to provide a geo-philosophically informed conceptualisation of the Earth as a primary plane of reference of which tourism is a particular form of de/re-territorialisation.
