Abstract: Encounters between people and collectives in touristified scenarios can be studied as relations between alterities. Many studies contribute neither to making an advantageous use of those encounters as the object of study or understanding their richness; these studies tend to avoid their problematisation as multidimensional human relationships. This way, some theoretical-methodological and epistemological turns can shed some light on the barriers in this respect. Among them, the current paper suggests considering current tourism as mobility, placing it in the social sciences and humanities as an epistemological and theoretical-methodological substratum, where there can be research of concrete experiences with qualitative methods to account for empathic or conflictive aspects while still considering the historical interpretations and the influencing discourses between ones and others.
