New book: Film Tourism in Asia. Evolution, Transformation, and Trajectory
A new book, edited by Prof. Stijn Reijnders and Prof. Sean Kim, has recently been published: Film Tourism in Asia. Evolution, Transformation, and Trajectory.
This book focuses on film tourism: the phenomenon of people visiting locations from popular film or TV series. It is based on a unique, Asian perspective, encompassing case studies from around the pan-Asian region, including China, Taiwan, India, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Singapore.
By focusing emphatically on film tourism in the non-West, this book offers a timely and crucial contribution to a more comprehensive understanding of the relation between film, culture and place, particularly in light of the increased volume of media production and consumption across Asia, and the consequent film tourism destinations that are currently popping up across the Asian continent.
