Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue presents and promotes scattered cultural heritage and contemporary artistic production related to historical and contemporary travel experiences in Europe. Modern travellers seek places with added value, such as points of interest and natural, cultural and historical monuments; thus, our objective is to connect international professionals in cultural, heritage, tourist, educational sectors and academia. The aim is to spotlight new approaches and best practices for engaging the public through GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) collections, which can be used in the context of cultural tourist routes. 

This Special Issue will focus on several broad sub-themes, including:

  • Cultural tourism: best practices for engaging the public through cultural heritage, revealing heritage to modern travellers and its cultural interpretation;
  • Storytelling routes of cultural heritage;
  • GLAM collections: reuse, promotion and revitalization of GLAM collections and the cultural tourism industry;
  • Audience development and engagement;
  • Traveling along cultural routes: opportunities for intersectoral collaboration and development;
  • Presentation of artistic material in GLAM institutions related to the topic with common inter-cultural denominations;
  • Development of digital collections and their connection with other existing digital libraries or archives;
  • Digital technologies: digitization and digital preservation of cultural heritage in the context of cultural routes and tourism;
  • Development of tools such as web and mobile applications for presenting the travel routes for contemporary audiences;
  • Intercultural dialogue and the context of cultural tourism.
