Book Information


Title: Discourse, Communication & Tourism
Edited By: Adam Jaworski
Annette Pritchard

For the first time ever, this book brings together an explicit linkage
between empirical and theoretical perspectives on tourism and discourse. A
broad social semiotic approach is adopted to analyze a range of spoken,
written and visual texts providing a unique resource for researching and
teaching tourism in the context of communication studies. Some of the key
concepts explored in its chapters include space, representation, the
tourist experience, identity, performance and authenticity, and the
contributors are key sociologists of tourism as well as discourse analysts
and sociolinguists.
