This book introduces and critically examines affective tourism – the ways in which affects, emotions and feelings are accessed, felt, experienced and performed in encounters between touring bodies and places. Theories of affect, emotion, psychoanalysis and tourism are brought together to explore dark tourism routes in places of socio-political turmoil such as Jordan, and Palestine/Israel. The intention is to interject two novel concepts in tourism studies: socio-spatial affect and psychoanalytic drives. Affect is to be found in visceral intensities that circulate around and shape encounters between tourists, local tourism representatives and places. Affect can manifest in resonances of emotions such as fun, joy, fear, anger and the like. When it remains a visceral force of latent bodily responses, affect overlaps with drives as they are expounded in psychoanalysis.
