(De)constructing tourist space

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Contemporary tourist space rises a series of analytical problems that can be faced by the geographer through a pluralistic perspective. This paper develops an approach based on the system theory to ficus the territorial impact of tourism. A special concern is given to the role of destination image and its relationships with geographical representations.
Then, adopting a deconstructive view, the break of the signifying chain is analyzed with its consequences on the crisis of representation in the social studies.
Deconstruction is therefore used to emphasize the role of representation in the construction of tourist space and to search for an alternative meaning of geographical metaphors in the ever-changing territorial context of our age.
