This paper frames international student mobilities throughout Europe as a novel Grand Tour to revise the social and material tourist encounter with the continent and ordinary life therein, and advance cultural and political debates concerning the European space. This is done by analysing how European imaginaries are enacted in three tourist pictures of Rome, collected through photo-elicited focus groups with international students. The methods employed in the latest visual and tourism studies were used herein. This study shows how persistent and often stereotyped representations of Europe come together with critical readings of the European society, and highlights the importance – in the geographical analysis of tourist photography – of including more-than-representational accounts of what happens before and after shooting a tourist picture

Abstract

This paper frames international student mobilities throughout Europe as a novel Grand Tour to revise the social and material tourist encounter with the continent and ordinary life therein, and advance cultural and political debates concerning the European space. This is done by analysing how European imaginaries are enacted in three tourist pictures of Rome, collected through photo-elicited focus groups with international students. The methods employed in the latest visual and tourism studies were used herein. This study shows how persistent and often stereotyped representations of Europe come together with critical readings of the European society, and highlights the importance – in the geographical analysis of tourist photography – of including more-than-representational accounts of what happens before and after shooting a tourist picture
