Abstract


This manuscript from Hollinshead and Vellah calls for researchers in Tourism Studies and related Fields to reflect upon their own role in refreshingthe social imaginaries of “after-colonialism” under the nomadisms of ourtime. Deleuzian in outlook, it positions the “post” of postcolonialism notas an end to colonialism’s imperatives but as a generative-portal throughwhich new-seeds-of-”becoming” are discernable as the postidentities (ratherthan the “identities”) of populations are interpretable in multidirectional,non-hierarchical, and not easily-predictable ways. In provoking (afterDeleuze) thought per rhizomatic processes (rather than via fixed concepts),the manuscript - critiquing these dynamic matters of “postidentity” - thenharnesses the insights of (Leela) Ghandi’s on hybrid-nomadic-subjects, andof Venn on alternative-(com)possible-futures. Thereafter, these concerns ofand about “after-colonialism” are critically contextualised within Aboriginal “Australia”, via the views of a pool of Indigenous intellectuals there,who synthesise the disruptive dialectics of belonging-cum-aspiration whichthey maintain that they and fellow Aboriginal people (of many sorts) facetoday. Throughout this manuscript, the agency and authority of tourismhovers in its sometimes-manifest / sometimes-latent generative power toproject empowering postidentities for the world’s “host” or “visited” populations today.
