Chapter 28: Globalisation: the shrinking world of tourism
This concluding chapter critically examines several key tourism concepts directly related to globalization but which have received relatively little academic attention. In particular, the chapter looks at changing technology and how it plays out on the tourism-globalization stage. It also examines other mobilities, including migration and diasporic travel, the fluid concept of ‘home’, medical mobility, and how tourist mobility has created impacts in places where tourism has not existed before. Cultural globalization is also analyzed, including pop culture, cross-border cultural routes, and cultural branding. Finally, the chapter teases out concepts related to place and placelessness through globalization and points on future research directions that are needed to understand globalization better in the realm of tourism.
