Announcing a research workshop on the topic of: Urban Tourism Planning – Jerusalem as a Case Study
We invite researchers, graduate students and professionals to join a research workshop during the 2013-14 academic year entitled:  Urban Tourism Planning: Jerusalem as a Case Study. Led by Prof. Noam Shoval and Israel Kimchi.
  
The workshop will offer basic tools in urban tourism planning and will deal primarily with analyzing the spatial planning of tourism in Jerusalem, from the mid-1960s to the most current programs.  Special emphasis will be given to government activity in the sphere of developing and managing tourism in the city.  The analysis of Jerusalem as a case study will focus on the general context of current theories in urban tourism planning that are based on case studies of other cities around the world.  Main topics to be covered in the workshop include: Tourist activity patterns in time and place, location of hotels, transportation and tourism, tourism management, and so on.
  
Workshop participants will be asked to read articles in advance of sessions that will take place on a monthly basis (seven double sessions to be given monthly on Sundays during the academic year, with a concluding seminar in June 2014).  Participants will also be required to present a local or international case study at one of the workshop sessions.
  
The workshop will be given jointly by the Geography Department of Hebrew University and the Jerusalem Institute, and will take place at Radak Street.  Experts from Israel and around the world will also be invited to some of the workshop sessions to lecture and share their opinions.
 
The aim of the workshop is to encourage the writing of research papers on the subject of urban tourism in general, and particularly with regard to tourism in Jerusalem.  The best research papers presented will be published by the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies as part of a research anthology.
  
Applicants for the workshop should e-mail their resume to Shirli@jiis.org.il by July 21, 2013.
