What are the relationships among history, fiction, and tourism? Contributions are solicited for a collection of essays that will map the boundaries of and intersections among these discourses of “place” and its significance, with an emphasis on literary tourism and the British Isles. Essays may be weighted towards the theoretical or may be focused on studies of individual historical sites or literary authors; they may approach the subject from the disciplinary perspectives of anthropology, cultural studies, literary history, or history. Potential subjects of interest include historicality, historicity, and historical fiction; the influence of popular fiction and film on British tourism or on the marketing of historical sites to the literary tourist; the (re)creation of history in fiction and film; and the impact of tourism on historical curation.
