Marie-Laure Poulot (Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3) cosigne, également dans cet ouvrage, le chapitre 5 "The invention of the ordinary city as a heritage and tourist place" avec Elizabeth Auclair et Anne Hertzog.
This chapter examines two practices which requalify the place of residence (the space of everyday life) as a space of hospitality for strangers. The first consists of hosting strangers and/or staying with strangers, while the second involves the reciprocal exchange of accommodation for vacation purposes between, again, strangers.
Contrary to the emic point of view, these practices do not go beyond the framework of tourism because they are actually based on the patterns of the tourist imaginary. However, these practices could be an opportunity to break out of the hegemony of commercial tourism, and help reorganise tourism on “social wealth” rather than on economic growth. What is at stake, is the appropriation of this tourism co-production by deprived social categories because today it is mainly categories with cultural capital that use it.
