The Ethnography of Tourism

Edward Bruner and Beyond

Lexington Books 2019

Edited by Naomi M. Leite, Quetzil E. Castañeda, and Kathleen M. Adams, The Ethnography of Tourism: Edward Bruner and Beyond (Lexington Books, 2019) focuses on the experience-near, interpretive-humanistic approach to tourism studies widely associated with anthropologist Edward Bruner. The contributors draw on their fieldwork to illustrate and build upon key concepts in tourism ethnography, from experience, encounter, and emergent culture to authenticity, narrative, contested sites, the borderzone, embodiment, identity, and mobility. 

The Ethnography of Tourism won the 2020 Edward Bruner Book Prize from the Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group (American Anthropological Association).
