Cinematic Tourist by Rodanthi Tzanelli
Book DescriptionRecent years have seen a radical transformation of conventional tourist marketing and experience. The use of exotic locations in Hollywood films has allowed global audiences to enjoy distant places. Simultaneously, Hollywood screening of potential 'tourist paradises' has generated new tourist industries around the world. This book takes a closer look at this new phenomenon of 'cinematic tourism', combining theory with case studies drawn from four continents: America, Europe, Asia and Australasia. The author explores audiences' perceptions of film and their covert relationship with tourist advertising campaigns, alongside the nature of newly-born tourist industries and the reaction of native populations and nation-states faced with the commodification of their histories, identities and environments.

Cosmopolitan Memory in Europe's 'Backwaters', Paperback (February 2014)
This title reconsiders definitional relationships of 'national character' and 'national heritage' in the context of Western industrial modernity. It highlights the gendered and racialised histories of this modernity, arguing that they continue to play a large role in global circulations of national heritage by creative industries.
Olympic Ceremonialism and the Performance of National Character, Hardback (April 2013)» View all books by Rodanthi Tzanelli
This book examines the London 2012 opening and closing ceremonies and the handover to Rio 2016 as articulations of national and cosmopolitan belonging. The ceremonial performances supported imaginative travel and created a tornadoros: an ideal form of 'human' that manipulates audiovisual narratives of culture and identity for global audiences.
