‘Tourism geographies are moving out’: A comment on the current state of institutional geographies of tourism geographies

Abstract [en]

Tourism geographies are a vibrant field of scientific inquiry. Despite this, it is obvious that the sub-disciplineis met with disinterest within geography departments, at the same time as tourism geographers are welcomedand acknowledged within the wider tourism community. This article offers some reflections and an institutionalperspective on the tourism–geography nexus. This is accomplished by reviewing the institutional andgeographical affiliations of authors in the journal Tourism Geographies. It is shown that tourism geographiesare successful globally, but for various reasons are increasingly marginalized within geography departments.Hence, it is concluded that tourism geographies seem to be moving out of geography departments, which mayturn out to deprive students of learning about the geography of a major driver of global and regional change.
