The tourism ordering: Taking tourism more seriously as a globalising ordering. Franklin, A. Civilisations, 57(1/2):25, February, 2008.
abstract   bibtex   
This paper will start by clarifying what I mean by the tourism ordering. For many years tourism theory was inhibited by narrow structuralist theorising and the notion of 'places on the margin'. Consequently tourism was considered both socially and spatially marginal to the main business of contemporary life and most often a problem in both senses. As a result, its wider effects were never adequately theorised. Using a mix of ideas from Foucault, Latour Law, Deleuze and Guattari as well as those who advocate a sociology of orderings, the tourism ordering seeks not only to theorise the place of tourism in contemporary societies but to demonstrate its rather potent impact as an ordering of modernity. While not seeking absolute redemption for tourism this paper will seek to identify some of the more positive and interesting 'ordering effects' this ordering has had. (English)
