The pluridisciplinar expertise on rural tourism of our research team follows several approaches:

  • A communication/linguistic approach, defined by the analysis of the mobilization of knowledge, processes and devices of communication;
  • A sociological approach allowing the analysis of speech and individual and/or collective strategies;
  • A territorial approach that can be translated by the analysis of identity strategies of territories and its actors;
  • A cultural marketing approach, which develops two types of analysis: semiotic analysis of communication devices and an expertise of product positioning and brand strategy; as well as marketing analysis and evaluation of touristic devices.
