Abstract [en]

This chapter problematizes the intertwined and multidimensional practices of professional mobility and tourism. The authors challenge traditional understandings of tourism by analyzing how physicians and researchers, while working temporarily in another country, become momentary tourists in-between mandatory job obligations or even while performing their duties. Tourist activities and experiences happen both in planned forms of leisure-oriented activities and excursions, and sometimes just as “moments” – temporary shifts and alterations of one’s mood during other undertakings. The fact that the professionals are both traveling and working in a location influences their interests and perceptions when they momentarily shift to a tourist mode. An “exotic” experience might thus be seeing elephants on their way to work and Oxford dons in their gowns at dinners, but also different ways of organizing seminars or childcare among their colleagues. The authors argue that highly skilled professionals’ combination of academic work and temporary tourist moments could be understood as an ongoing interplay between different types of gazes. The data consists of 73 ethnographic interviews with medical professionals and humanities scholars from Sweden.
