Security and social 'sorting': traversing the surveillance-tourism dialectic
MetadataShow full item record
The discourses of surveillance are central to international tourism, itself concerned with mobilities and flows between inter-modal facilities such as train stations, ferry ports and airports – where the most diverse forms of surveillance are found. This article puts surveillance under scrutiny, discussing the ‘new surveillance’ and (through an exploration of the nature of airport surveillance) reviewing the implications of the ‘panoptic sort’ for tourism experiences, practices, and studies. The article concludes that there is an opportunity to locate tourism studies in the vanguard of social science explorations of the ethical and socio-cultural relationships that characterize the dynamics between surveillance and the body. In suggesting an agenda for study of the surveillance–tourism dialectic, it also contends that such examinations could further broaden the theorization of the gaze(s) in tourism studies.
