This presentation reflects on a new ethnographic approach for critical scholarship on embodiment and biopolitical concerns in tourism: partigraphy. As a combination of the words particle and ethnography, partigraphy seeks to critically and creatively study the implications of particulate matters on the everyday experiences of tourists, and more generally, on issues related to the staging of the global tourism industry in relation to particles. To push forward this new mode of inquiry, this research note outlines four analytical avenues that will help guide future partigraphy in tourism studies.
