Call for Book Chapters: Humanistic Perspectives in Hospitality and Tourism

Editors: Kemi Ogunyemi, Omowunmi Ogunyemi and Ebele Okoye

Publishers: in review with Palgrave Macmillan

The book presents a deepened understanding of the value of work in the field of hospitality, relying on a framework of philosophical anthropology, the concept of humanistic leadership and the pillars of humanistic management. It will enrich the understanding of the implications of the work and its impact on the persons who carry it out, their colleagues and the people they work for. It does so by exploring the role of service for both personal growth and the professional’s contribution to the development of their colleagues (internal customers) and the people they serve (external customers and society). It also presents robust theoretical and practical implications for professionalism and leadership in hospitality, since it focuses on aspects of both personal and societal development while connecting them to human flourishing and responsibility respectively.
