This proposed volume will cross-examine culture and inter-cultural facets in tourism in detailed analyses of tourism interactions and focus on the notion of culture as a process or phenomenon engaged in or enacted on by individuals. Drawing on discourse analytics (e.g. Pattachitra handicraft in West Bengal, India) and ethnographic approaches, this proposed book attempts to bring together perspectives from the lived experiences of residents, hosts, and ethnographers to explore the extent to which linguistic and cultural differences are identified, constructed, negotiated and maintain a relationship in tourism encounters. The volume will draw on insights from those working across a range of geographic contexts and explores the interplay of these issues in various languages and how ethnic language can be used in tourism interactions.
