Defining the Hospitality Discipline: a Discussion of Pedagogical and Research Implications [Summary]
MetadataShow full item record
In summary, the field of hospitality has interesting and interdependent relationships with its constituent industries (lodging, foodservice, travel, leisure, attractions, and conventions). Each independent industry takes input from the hospitality field either directly or indirectly for its survival and success, and in turn they offer an output that promotes the field of hospitality. This relationship is very interdependent in nature, which results in the often quoted multiplier effect of tourism. There is obviously no common shared paradigm of what is meant by hospitality. If hospitality research and practice are to progress, hospitality research must develop a rigorous theory based on research that clearly defines hospitality. This would strengthen the aim toward establishing hospitality as a legitimate academic discipline of its own right.
