The International Multidisciplinary Congress Empire & Tourism is based on the idea that it is necessary to reflect on how the journeying between the metropole and the former colonies inspired the growth of colonial tourism which developed in multiple different strands. The ‘age of empires’ closely overlaps the dramatic development of tourism from a largely European phenomenon to a global one. This question is also related to the theme of borders, physical as well as ideological, since Colonial Travel was linked to the established imperial power, now revisited in the light of post-colonial studies to which the present age is heir. Taking as its starting point the growing visibility of the theme at an international level, and with the project incorporated within a framework encapsulated within Contemporary Art History that takes into account the specificities of the national culture, we propose to reflect on the triangle of ‘Travel – Colonial Tourism – Culture, not only from the viewpoint of the European geo-political context but also from perspectives of an authorial world view.
