Call for Papers and Presentations

The HTHIC2017 conference organisers welcome full papers, research notes and presentations that contribute to the understanding of:

Heritage, tourism and destinations: identity, branding and marketing

and elaborate on, for example, the role of heritage in the branding of places; comparative narratives and styles and best practices as to integrative narratives of heritage across nations (supra-national scale); the significance of (multi- and cross-media) storytelling for effective marketing and reputation management; the role and potential of digital technologies and social media.

Heritage, hospitality and sustainable tourism development

and critically examine, for example, sustainable heritage tourism governance, policymaking and management; the use of (shared) narratives for visitor experience development and stakeholder engagement; entrepreneurship and innovative perspectives on heritage tourism development.

Preserving, (re)presenting and communicating heritage

and address aspects such as international cooperation of heritage tourism preservation; the role and nature of the social web and information and communication technologies within the context of (sustainable) heritage tourism (including mobile apps, augmented and virtual reality); the use of (digital) storytelling, oral history and crowdsourcing.

Governance, partnerships and communities of practice

and explore private and public partnerships and networks for conversion and revitalisation of heritage (physical, cultural, memory etc.); new modelling approaches for the governance of heritage-hospitality projects and events and the management of tensions between heritage values and hospitality values; leverage creativity through the arts, media and heritage communities of practice; globalisation and the use of heritage and citizenship in the formation of local identity.

History and heritage of tourism

and analyse, for example, ways we “invent” the past and use history and fiction in the context of cultural heritage and tourism; use of oral, public, authorized and other histories in the framing of heritage; the emergence and disappearance of historical values of things and places; past policies and practices that impacted urban heritage tourism and improved (or not) residents’ quality of life – to learn from a historic perspective.
