Touring ethnicity, race and multiculturalism in urban contexts
The study of tourism and leisure, once disparaged in the social sciences as a topic unworthy of analysis, is finally getting the attention it deserves. In an increasingly post-industrial, neo-liberal, service economy, tourism and leisure practices have the potential to transform, for good or ill, local social lives. This article examines three recently published books that critically address tourism and leisure in urban contexts and how these practices intersect with multiculturalism, race and ethnicity.

More about this publication?
- Cities have been increasingly at the forefront of debate in both humanities and social-science disciplines, but there has been relatively little dialogue across these disciplinary boundaries. Journals in social-science fields that use urban-studies methods to look at life in cities rarely explore the cultural aspects of urban life in any depth or delve into close readings of the representation of cities in individual cultural products. As a platform for interdisciplinary scholarship from any and all linguistic, cultural and geographical traditions, the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies prioritizes the urban phenomenon in order to better understand the culture(s) of cities.
