Representing protected areas: a critical discourse analysis of tourism destination building in a Greek travel magazine



Representing protected areas: a critical discourse analysis of tourism destination building in a Greek travel magazine



International Journal of Tourism Research 8(6): 431-449



The present paper examines the way protected areas are constructed as tourism destinations by the information sources (i.e. a Greek travel magazine) that are consumed by potential visitors to such areas. Specifically, it explores what form of tourism is proposed for virtual visitors, whether it is ecotourism (i.e. both tourism and environmentalism) or simply a nature-based one (i.e. exclusively tourism).
