'Doing' Tourism Gender Research in Asia: An Analysis of Authorship, Research Topic and Methodology
While tourism research concerning Asians and gender has become more prevalent in the international scholarly platform, we still know very little about Asian women and men in consuming tourism space and product. This dearth of research (i.e. gendered tourism studies in Asia) is highlighted in previous chapters, so here we focus on how the handful of available studies have approached Asian gender and tourism. More specifically, this chapter provides an analysis of authorship, common research topic, and methodology within these papers. Discussion on authorships addresses the power relation in the production of knowledge, such as who produces knowledge for whom and from whose perspective. By looking at common topics, we identify the current research trends and gaps. Analysis on methodologies allows us to understand how Asians’ travel experience has been studied thus far and what epistemological stances have been embraced by tourism researchers.
