Call for Papers 2

Call for papers: Special issue
Places of the imagination: Tourism, Literature and Cinema

Places of the imagination: Tourism, Literature and Cinema Literature, films and television series create imaginary worlds, portray landscapes, expand knowledge about the world, nurture emotions and inspire people to travel. This special issue focuses on the phenomenon of people travelling to places associated with a novel, poem, writer, television series or film. These tourism niches – literary tourism and film-induced tourism – are expressions of media tourism, and over the past few decades, they have been significant in developing new destinations and experiences.

This special issue aims to contribute to the existing literature on media tourism by
exploring the advances in research on the intersections of literature, film and the act of
travelling. Therefore, we welcome original research from a range of disciplines in the
fast-expanding literary and film-induced tourism niches.

There are no submission or acceptance fees.
