This conference considers the vocabularies of tourism, in broad terms, to think about the ways in which Palestine was both produced and consumed by Arabs and by Europeans (1898 - 1948).  Focusing broadly from questions of multilingualism, especially in tourist guides and language manuals to the ways in which photography and its increasing availability was shaped by the demands of tourism markets, Vocabularies of Tourism also considers the relationship between tourism and cultural diplomacy.  

As part of this conference, several public events will also be organised:
