Abstract

ESP is a well-established field of study nowadays, and a large number of studies have been addressing issues concerning the specialized languages of economics, law, medicine, advertising, arts, etc. Yet, a gender perspective has not been adopted so far. Tourism is a case in point, especially because the tourist experience is very common nowadays. And if we spoke of a ‘tourism’ experience, rather than a ‘tourist’ one, both guests (i.e. visitors) and hosts (i.e. locals) would be included. In that case, the experience would be an all-embracing, almost ‘universal’ one, as it would probably include a large part of the population all over the world. As a consequence, a question immediately arises: what space do gender considerations have when we describe tourism as a global experience, open to the participation of gendered individuals?
