It’s with great pleasure that I’m able to announce the table of contents for the special “sport, heritage, and tourism” issue of The Journal of Heritage Tourism. The issue is currently in production and will be Volume 9, Number 3, 2014, meaning it should be available in its entirety in the autumn, though some papers may be released on-line early than this via the journal’s website.
In any event, here’s the table of contents:
- Introduction/Editorial – Sport, Heritage, and Tourism – Gregory Ramshaw, Clemson University
- It Still Goes On: Football and the Heritage of the Great War in Britain – Ross Wilson, University of Chichester
- Indigenous Sport and Heritage: Cherbourg’s Ration Shed Museum – Murray Phillips, University of Queensland, Gary Osmond, University of Queensland & Sandra Morgan, Cherbourg Historical Precinct Group
- Identity in the “Road Racing Capital of the World”: Heritage, Geography and Contested Spaces – Ray Moore, University of York, Matthew Richardson, Manx National Heritage & Claire Corkill, University of York
- Heroes as Heritage: The Commoditization of Sporting Achievement – Sean Gammon, University of Central Lancashire
- A Canterbury Tale: Imaginative Genealogies and Existential Heritage Tourism at the St. Lawrence Ground – Gregory Ramshaw, Clemson University
As the papers are released, I will announce them via the Twitter page and offer a few additional comments about them on this site.
I am very pleased with how this issue has turned out and I can wait for this fantastic sport heritage research to be read.
