The IUAES Commission on the Anthropology of Tourism was founded during the fourteenth IUAES Congress in Williamsburg, USA (1998). Dr. Valene Smith was the Commission’s first chair. Dr. Gregory Teal took over at the fifteenth IUAES Congress in Florence, Italy (2003). He is succeeded by Dr. Noel B. Salazar, who was elected chair during the seventeenth IUAES Congress in Manchester (2013). The main objective of the Commission is to promote the anthropology of tourism in the fields of research, teaching and public dissemination. The Commission facilitates the networking across the globe of people who share this interest. The Commission’s mailing list is open to everyone with an interest in the anthropology of tourism.
