In this installment of Lexington Books' "Anthropology of Tourism: Heritage, Mobility and Society" Author Conversation series, series editor Michael A. Di Giovine talks with Bryan Grimwood, Heather Mair, Kellee Caton and Meghan Muldoon about their book, "Tourism and Wellness: Travel for the Good of All?" Wellness is treated in a holistic fashion, not only pertaining to physical or economic well-being but ecological balance, relationships between human and non-human actors, social sustainability, justice for descendant communities, and more. The conversation concludes with a lively debate on the future of tourism in the post-COVID era, and whether physical travel will be (or should be) necessary to achieve personal well-being.
