  • Geomythology, caves, and tourism: history and future perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Aleksandar Antić, Adrienne Mayor
      Pages: 99 - 112
      Abstract: The main goal of this study is to explore the current understanding of geomythology and its potential interactions and future perspectives in cave tourism destinations. The study includes a theoretical overview of geomythology, ancient stories and myths about the origin and events in caves around the world, the concept of tourist caves (show caves), and the use of geomythology for cave tourism storytelling. Considering the diversity of geomythology and ancient cave myths, it is evident that future cave tourism interpretation should be directed toward searching out mytho-historical narratives that captivate visitors. The analysis showed that geomythology can provide a unique and powerful way to promote and modernise the presentation of special caves for exciting and ethical tourism development.

  • Temple service quality model for future pilgrimages in Indian
           sub-continent through user-generated contents (UGC) in TripAdvisor

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Debasish Batabyal, Yashwant Singh Rawal, Pratim Chatterjee, Shatrajit Goswami
      Pages: 113 - 135
      Abstract: Several thousand years old 12 holy radiant pillars (or <i>Jyotirlings</i>) circuit, comprising 12 temples, represents the most sacred Hindu pilgrimage with immense religious and mythological values in the Indian sub-continent. This paper designs and projects a temple service quality (TSQ) model based on user-generated content (UGC) from TripAdvisor for all these 12 sacred sites with a special emphasis on the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi. This Kashi Vishwanath temple registers maximum negative reviews all over a decade. The TSQ model is exhibited through these extensive reviews of research literature, official temple websites, and user-generated content (UGC) in TripAdvisor. The accuracy, precision, and sensitivity of the model have been tested through a confusion matrix retrieved from UGC in TripAdvisor.

  • The multiple presentations of Chengdu's leisure life in Xinxin News
           advertisements from 1930 to 1949 from the perspective of historical
           anthropology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Zhengyi Li, Baihuai Li
      Pages: 136 - 160
      Abstract: This study used advertisements in the <i>Xinxin News</i>, a daily newspaper published in the Republic of China, as its historical material, took the leisure life of modern Chengdu citizens as its research object, and applied the research paradigm of historical anthropology to observe multiple changes in the leisure life of modern Chengdu. It was shown that, on the one hand, advertisements in the newspaper motivated the leisure lifestyle of modern Chengdu citizens, on the other hand, that leisure consumption became a fashionable modern goal actively pursued by Chengdu citizens in their daily lives. This paper discussed the leisure life of modern Chengdu as revealed by advertisements in the <i>Xinxin News</i> and explored the changing trajectory of the social panoramas of modern Chengdu, thus showing how a landlocked city in China started to become an international city in the wave of globalisation that washed over the country.
      Keywords: Xinxin news; advertisement; the period of the Republic of China; Chengdu citizens; Leisure life

  • Tourism and food sovereignty: case study on Bolivar's concheras
           (Esmeraldas, Ecuador)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Zhengyi Li, Baihuai Li
      Pages: 161 - 179
      Abstract: The analysis of the touristic activities' impacts in rural areas has been -and continues to be- object of study for anthropology. The results of its effect in the food sovereignty of destinations are clearly ambivalent. Through a case study that took place in the Bolívar's Parish, a small destination aiming to be touristic, located in the coast of the Ecuadorian North Pacific, the work of las <i>concheras</i> has been analysed. It is a traditional activity that consists of the manual collection of different types of shellfish that exist in the mangrove. Some problems have been observed because of the installation of ponds for shrimp farming more than 20 years ago and, due to the arrival of the touristic activity to the neighbouring towns, this collective has been trying to draw attention and give value to their work by generating transformation strategies to penetrate the touristic market.
      Keywords: tourism; food sovereignty; Bolívar's concheras; gender perspective; shrimp farming ponds; Esmeraldas-Ecuador
