The Travel, Tourism, and Global Culture area invites presentations on any aspect of global (international and/or ethnic) culture. The mediated world continues to change the relationship of the individual to global geography. Meanwhile, international travel sees both new opportunities and new challenges. And the very nature of tourism continues to evolve. The world is your oyster, but some possible areas of consideration include:
•    Arts initiatives-including public art exhibits, guerrilla gardening, tagging etc
•    Immigrant neighborhoods
•    Music, including world music
•    Literature, including travel literature (broadly defined)
•    Exploration of spatial/geographical community (e.g. urban studies, urban-rural divides, megacities, etc)
•    Other aspects of world culture in its broadest meaning(s)
