This special issue was an effort of many authors and friends. We have successfully gathered almost 15 good works which primarily focus on the impact of terrorism in daily life, but what is most important in leisure hot spots and tourist destinations. In the same way, we interrogated on the sociological reasons why terrorists often target tourists, and the problems it represents for Western Hospitality. This is a gift (in our own native language), we Spanish Speaking Researchers make for the world. This is published in the leading journal Estudios and Perspectivas en Turismo conducted by Regina Schluter and Juana Norrild. God bless you all. Max and Ericka.-
De Isis a Wannacry: el efecto del terrorismo en el mundo moderno MAXIMILIANO E KORSTANJE Resumen El presente ensayo se centra en los dos últimos virus de tipo ransomeware, Wannacry y Petya, que han conmocionado a la opinión pública mundial. En los últimos años, algunos especialistas han alertado sobre la manipulación de virus por parte de grupos terroristas. Desde una perspectiva nueva, sugerimos que tanto terrorismo como virus informáticos de tipo ransomeware son fenómenos que se derivan del mismo fenómeno, una crisis de sentido en la hospitalidad occidental. Nuestra tesis apela a ese asentimiento voluntario de aceptación que todo virus necesita, y que analogía con el extranjero, los especialistas rechazan. En occidente la hospitalidad, la cual necesita de una aceptación consentida – como el virus-no solo tiene sus días contados sino que filosóficamente hablando, yace junto al cadáver de la democracia. La repetida y expandida obsesión por la seguridad produce nuevas paradojas y riesgos, que llevan al agotamiento de las instituciones. Palabras claves: Terrorismo, Ransomware, Wannacry, Petya, Miedo, hospitalidad. How to cite this paper, Korstanje M (2017) " De ISIS a Wannacry: el efecto del terrorismo en el mundo moderno ".

This book centers not only on the “scourge of terrorism”, a problem which concerns policy-makers, officials and governments worldwide, but dissects the reasons and effects it has on people’s daily lives. Focusing on 9/11 as the founding event, terrorism and the attention given by the media and news containing violence-related content paved the way for the rise of a new stage of capitalism. Authors invited to this project discuss with accuracy to what extent terrorism is changing day-to-day behaviours, social institutions and democracy. Basically, the rise and expansion of globalization, which crystalized into a more mobile world, alluded to a culture of instantaneity where news on terror produces a double-edge effect. On one hand, terrorist cells are prone to develop crueler and further violent tactics to perpetrate their attacks since the constant media coverage produces a process of desensitization in audiences. On another hand, the “war on terror” is discursively manipulated to impose some restrictive economic policies that would otherwise be neglected. Lastly, not only does terrorism seem to affect the tenets of democracy, but it also accelerates the rise of populist leaders in the decades to come. Since terrorism is subtly changing our lives, this book offers an all-encompassing model to expand the current understanding of students, scholars and policy makers in order to prioritize republicanism over “the concept of security”. In this vein, Latin America has much to say to shed light on how terrorism effaces democracy. In view of the American sentiment of exemplarity adjoined to the commoditization of death in capitalist societies, the discourse of fear may very well lead to pathological reactions that prevent “hospitality”, which was historically the touchstone of the Western world.

Artículos Korstanje M. Movilidad, Violencia y la Esencia de la Hospitalidad: radriografia del estado nacional. El Periplo Sustentable. Nùmero 32. Febrero 2017. Disponible en Resumen La literatura especializada en turismo y hospitalidad apela a la construcción de una industria que proteja los intereses de la comunidad, la cual apoyada por el patrimonio puede reconvertir una situación histórica desfavorable en un beneficio tangible. El turismo cultural y la patrimonialización han jugado un rol importante dentro del mantenimiento de ciertos destinos. No obstante, no menos cierto es que la idea misma de patrimonio y hospitalidad se encuentra asociada a una violencia silenciosa que permitió al estado nacional
Purpose – After almost a decade, the re-appearance of dengue fever in Argentina caused panic and fears. Unlike Bolivia, Brazil and Paraguay, where prevention policies have been followed, the future of dengue is uncertain in Argentina; the present paper does not have political affiliation but the purpose of this paper is to emphasizes the role that mass media plays in the coverage of epidemics. Design/methodology/approach – In moments of disorder, uncertainness or disaster, societies experience a shift in the ways they perceive their reality. Findings – In the times, media plays a dominant role in constructing the reality that the authors get to consume. Such reality is reflective of media’s own biases and those of the vested interests that control the media. Originality/value – This essay draws from social psychology and allied literature to highlight how the recent reemergence of dengue in Argentina was employed as a lever for achieving a range of ulterior objectives.
Problems to understand social phenomenon associates to our misconceptions, stereotypes and prejudices imposed during our early socialization. This happens not only with tourism which is valorized as a right of all citizens in modern societies, but also with terrorism, judged as the main threat of West. However, what would happen if both would be different sides of the same coin? This essay review explores the roots of tourism and terrorism during the process of unionization in US. What on one hand resulted in a hyper-mobile process that shore up tourism, on another was a desesperate attempt to struggle against terrorism. In this vein, it is safe to say that tourism is terrorism by other means.
