Senior Tourism

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Aging and Traveling

Simone Francescato / Roberta Maierhofer / Valeria Minghetti (eds.)

This volume aims to bridge the disciplinary gap between tourism studies and aging studies. It investigates the intersections of tourism and aging from a variety of perspectives which focus on the many ways in which senior tourism is socially constructed and/or individually experienced. The essays tackle key topics ranging from the socio-economic aspects of post-retirement travel to the representations of the traveling elderly in literature, film and media, and the influence of travel on late-life creativity.

Simone Francescato (PhD) teaches American Culture and Literature at Ca‘ Foscari University of Venice.
Roberta Maierhofer is Professor of (Inter)American Studies at the University of Graz, Austria, and Adjunct Professor at Binghamton University, New York.
Valeria Minghetti is Chief Senior Researcher at CISET.
