Merenrantamatkailun historiaa

Resorting to the Coast:
Tourism, Heritage and Cultures of the Seaside 25—29 June 2009,
Blackpool, United Kingdom Globally, coastlines are arguably the most
important sites for tourist activity and tourism development. The
various combinations of sea and shore have become highly popular and
successful attractions, and a majority of the world’s leisure
tourists cling to these liminal spaces at the margins of the land.
The lure of the ‘seaside’, the beach, and the resorts which have
evolved to service and entertain tourists, is immensely powerful,
reflecting a long standing but ever-changing relationship between
humans and the oceans. The dominance of coastal tourism within the
modern period has generated a wealth of issues which this conference
seeks to address, including: The patterns and trends in how tourists
mobilise the resources of sea, sand and shore; Ways in which coastal
communities have adapted to tourism; Environmental degradation and
regeneration of coastal regions and marine ecologies; The historical
forms, structures and aesthetics of ‘seaside’ resorts; Regeneration
of ‘historic’ resorts; Continuing multi-national development of
‘pristine’ coastlines; Inclusivities and exclusivities in coastal
resorts; Changing beach and seaside holiday ‘traditions’.

In addressing such issues this major international and
multi-disciplinary conference seeks to promote dialogue across
disciplinary boundaries on a global stage. We therefore welcome
papers from:
anthropology, archaeology, architecture, art and design history,
cultural geography, cultural studies, ethnology and folklore,
history, heritage studies, landscape studies, linguistics, museum
studies, political science, sociology, tourism studies and
urban/spatial planning. The event will seek to draw upon ideas, cases
and best practice from international scholars and help develop new
understandings of the relationships between tourism and the coast. It
will also provide a major networking opportunity for international
scholars, policy makers and professionals.


Key themes of interest to the conference include:
• Histories of coastal tourism developments and resorts;
• Regeneration of coastal economies;
• Social and environmental impacts of coastal developments;
• Representations of seaside holidays in popular culture;
• Worker migrations to coastal sites;
• Beach behaviours and traditions;
• Myths of the sea and coastal communities;
• Coastal resort art and architecture;
• Tourist coastal colonies.
