TRANSFORMATIONS OF TRAVEL AND THEORY book
Peoples, cultures and objects migrate. This book draws on the expansion of social science interest in mobility, in the mobility of peoples, cultures and objects. It is now clear that people tour cultures; and that cultures and objects themselves travel. It is this two-fold aspect that will be jointly addressed in the chapters that follow. We begin this chapter with an analysis of the complex connections between tourism and cultural change, inspired by Said’s and Clifford’s notions of ‘travelling cultures’ (Said 1983; Clifford 1992).
