MetadataShow full item record
It has a double objective: on the one hand, it aims at gathering a comprehensive perspective into the quantity and evolution of studies on literary tourism and, on the other hand, identifying lines of research and the main objects of study within the research on literary tourism. The latter will allow us to identify what trends have been followed when analyzing literary tourism, both methodologically and conceptually. To answer these objectives, the article structures its literature review in two phases: a descriptive analysis and a thematic analysis. From this starting point, the article will present a number of challenges for future research on literary tourism, both at a methodological and content-related level, emphasizing the use of quantitative methodologies to approach this touristic type, analyzing the role of literary tourism in touristic destinations as well as focusing on the pedagogical needs of tourists in order to facilitate their access to literary tourism.
