Emergent Soft Science Approaches in Tourism Studies
This session invites presentations on state-of-the-art / cutting edge developments in advanced SOFT SCIENCE research approaches, focussing upon, for instance:
emergent interpretive processes;
advanced qualitative research methodologies;
unfolding soft science critique;
cutting edge ontological / epistemological thought;
tensions and contradictions in qualitative research today.
Presenters will be expected to give:
[i] the philosophy behind the emergent thinking, and then
[ii] relate that conceptuality to on-the-ground thinking International Tourism Studies.
The session will operate at the METHODOLOGICAL level rather than at the METHODS level.
