I am pleased to announce my paper, Creating Aristotelian Irrevocable Change in Tourists Touching Down at Newark Liberty International Airport, has been accepted as a part of “Tourism & Performance: Scripts, Stages and Stories” series for the 2005 Tourism Cultural Exchange Conference held at the Sheffield Hallam University School of Sport and Leisure Management, United Kingdom, 14-18 July 2005.

My paper argues every move a tourist makes through the airport is actually orchestrated and directed in an aesthetic way using Aristotle’s theory of dramatic construction: Plot, Character, Thought, Diction, Music and Spectacle.
