Senior Tourism : Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Aging and Traveling, Paperback / softback Book

Senior Tourism : Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Aging and Traveling Paperback / softback

Edited by Simone Francescato, Roberta Maierhofer, Valeria Minghetti

Description

This volume aims to bridge the disciplinary gap between tourism studies and aging studies.

It investigates the intersections of tourism and aging from a variety of perspectives which focus on the many ways in which senior tourism is socially constructed and/or individually experienced.

The essays tackle key topics ranging from the socio-economic aspects of post-retirement travel to the representations of the traveling elderly in literature, film and media, and the influence of travel on late-life creativity.
