>Tourism and the rise of resorts reflect nineteenth-century economic,
>social, and cultural developments which brought about increased time for
>leisure, sport, entertainment, and vacation activities beyond prescribed
>hours of "work."  While both the nature of the Grand Tour (formally
>restricted to the wealthy) and desirable destinations for travel evolved
>over time, sport, leisure, and vacation activities also extended to
>various levels of society:  resort businesses boomed, exotic locales
>drew tourists, advances in transportation opened new destinations, and
>tourism became an attractive and widespread diversion.  Other travel,
>however, was inspired by the desire to map space, to explore new
>territories and gather species of plants or animals there, to engage in
>missionary work or to study other peoples, to flee famines, and to
>migrate to a new home.  Travel and tourism altered conceptions of home,
>nation, and progress as people adapted to (or even resisted) the demands
>and/or pleasures of their journeys and destinations.
>
>For our 27th Annual Conference, NCSA encourages proposals that explore
>the meanings of travel, tourism, and resorts from a variety of
>disciplinary perspectives.  Possible topics include but are not limited
>to the following:
>
>Travels through time and space

>The laws of travel

>Means/Modes of Travel

>The distance we've traveled
>Migration, immigration, emigration
>Getaways and hideaways
>Resort architecture; architecture of sport & leisure
>Architectural sites as travel destination
>Representation of travel in art & literature
>Representation of sport and leisure in art/lit
>Papers may come from the fields of architecture, art history, ethnic or
>race studies, history, literature, medicine, museum
>or library studies, music, or the social sciences.  NCSA was founded to
>promote interdisciplinarity; proposals which approach the theme of the
>conference from an interdisciplinary basis are especially encouraged. 
>

>within thirty minutes of the Chesapeake Bay to the west and the Atlantic
>Ocean to the east.  Plans to tour 19th century sites in Berlin,
