Abstract

长期以来,人们都认为旅游业是极富韧性的产业。在过去几十年中,旅游业虽然遭受了许多打击, 但是依然呈现增长的态势。国际旅游地理研究也呈现蓬勃发展的态势。2020 年以来的全球新型冠状病 毒肺炎疫情对旅游业产生了巨大的影响,旅游地理研究也发生了相应的改变。本文对近十年来旅游地理 学研究的主要领域进行了回顾,探讨在 Covid-19 影响之下,该学科于未来几十年中主要关注的问题。本文 指出即便在全球疫情的严峻形势下,旅游地理方面长期关注的许多关键问题仍然具有重要的现实意义,例 如旅游的影响、作用及其与可持续发展目标的关系,旅游与气候变化,近几十年及未来几十年旅游的地理 尺度变化等。疫情影响下,旅游地理会更多地关注如何实现“更好的旅游业”、迅速崛起的旅游服务数字化 和社交媒体对旅游业的影响以及旅游业的韧性。从与地理学的其他分支学科相比被边缘化,这场全球疫 情以多种方式表明,休闲和旅游业从来都不是边缘产业,而是一个重要的经济产业,它不仅有助于人们的 社会福祉,也有助于提升人们的幸福感。

The tourism sector — once thought as a highly resilient industry that has seen immense growth in the past few decades and was envisioned to continue on this trajectory in the coming decades — has been faced with intense challenges since 2020 due to the global Covid-19 pandemic. Yet, numerous key issues that were originally considered in tourism geographies remain relevant — if not more so as a result of this global pandemic. This paper reviews the major areas of research in tourism geographies in the recent decade as a signal of what kinds of emphasis the subdiscipline should focus on in the coming decades. These include tourism's impact, influence, and relationships with sustainable development goals; climate change; making "better tourism" in the post-Covid world; shifting geographical dimensions of tourism in recent and coming decades; and the rapidly emerging digitalization of tourism services and social media's influence on tourism. From being marginalized in comparison to work and other subdisciplines in Geography, the pandemic has shown in numerous ways that leisure and tourism was never peripheral to begin with — it serves as an important economic industry, as much as it contributes to people's social well-being and imaginations of happiness. As tourism geographers, this offers numerous pressing research areas that must now be looked into.
