Dr Rodanthi Tzanelli and Maximiliano Korstanje are co-editing a special issue for the International Journal of the Anthropology of Tourism (IJTA).

Entitled  ‘Interrogating the end(s) of tourism: nomadologies, risk and terror’, the special issue is the first to examine the proposition that contemporary societies experience the ‘end of tourism’ as an academic thematic but also a socio-political reality.

The call for papers, which includes topical debates such as embodied and digital tourism mobilities, terrorism and social protests, as well as cross-overs between them, will remain open until the start of 2016.

Dr Tzanelli is an Associate Professor of Cultural Sociology and Maximiliano Korstanje is Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Palermo, Argentinaand and an International Visiting Professor at the Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies (CERS), at the University of Leeds.
