Questing For Capital: Tourism As Acculturation Practice

While consumer acculturation theorists have largely treated tourism as a distinct type of mobility, this paper reconceptualizes tourism as an acculturation practice. Informed by theories of capital consumption, this paper empirically demonstrates how questing for capital in long-term migration drives touristic practices which are iconic rather than singular.
