Call for Papers
Journal of Sport & Tourism

Special issue: Cultural Foundations of Sport & Tourism
Deadline for submission: 1 April 2009
Purpose of the special issue:

The activities and interactions of tourists and sportspeople implicate matters of culture. Anthropologists have consequently paid considerable attention to tourism, while others have considered the cultural foundations of sport. Their work has been complemented by anthropological work on events, and by efforts to bring the culture concept to bear on sport subcultures. Yet, sport tourism researchers have barely capitalized on the potentials enabled by these significant intellectual foundations.

This special issue seeks high quality papers that address any issue raised by the intersection of culture with sport and tourism. Papers can be conceptual or empirical, but should contribute to advancing theoretical and/or practical considerations having to do with the cultural foundations of sport tourism.

Requests for further information and expressions of interest should be directed to the Guest Editor for this special issue, Professor Laurence Chalip (LChalip@mail.utexas.edu)

Manuscripts should be sent electronically as an e-mail attachment directly to LChalip@mail.utexas.edu. All submissions will be subject to JS&T’s standard double-blind peer review process. Authors should prepare manuscripts according to JS&T’s instructions for authors available on the journal webpages.
