Which Sociology of Urban Tourism in the Day After Viral Society?: For an Intercultural, Intermediary, and Inter-Methodological Hybrid and Open Research
Pedro Andrade (University of Minho, Portugal)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-3369-0.ch001
Abstract
The contemporary pandemic conjuncture may lead to a ‘viral society', an unprecedent social paradigm involving deep economic, political, and cultural transformations. To cope with this globally unstable situation, it is urgent to deconstruct and reconstruct knowledge (e.g., through a social and sociological Encyclopedia of Viral Tourism addressing a particular genealogy of research on tourism studies and to be disseminated via a Virtual Sociological Museum). The author invokes here recent debates and his own personal research. Epistemologically, the pertinence of a hybrid and open research and several theoretical topics and case studies on tourism are discussed, for example, tourism articulated with the COVID-19 pandemic and the encounter of this viral tourism conjuncture with the war in Ukraine, which defines a new breed of war tourism. Regarding methodologies, the author converses on Hybrid Discourse Analysis and Visual, Virtual, and Viral Methods, such as sociological comics, video papers, artistic sociology, and sociological augmented reality.

Travel for pleasure; also the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists, and the business of operating tours. Tourism may be international, or within the traveller’s country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go “beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only “, as people “travelling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes”. Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country's balance of payments. Today, tourism is a major source of income for many countries, and affects the economy of both the source and host countries, in some cases being of vital importance. Tourism suffered as a result of a strong economic slowdown of the late-2000s recession, between the second half of 2008 and the end of 2009, and the outbreak of the H1N1 influenza virus, but slowly recovered. International tourism receipts (the travel item in the balance of payments) grew to US$1.03 trillion (€740 billion) in 2011, corresponding to an increase in real terms of 3.8% from 2010. International tourist arrivals surpassed the milestone of 1 billion tourists globally for the first time in 2012, emerging markets such as China, Russia and Brazil had significantly increased their spending over the previous decade.
