About the Course:

This course aims to deconstruct the institution of international tourism through the examination of travel writing, documentaries about foreign travel, and academic theory about global tourism. We will explore some of the most basic theories on the host/guest experience, including what it means to be a tourist in a globalizing world, what motivates tourists and the toured to participate in the consumption and production of culture, and what complications that may have for all parties involved. The benefits and drawbacks of international tourism will be a constant theme in the course, especially in relation to native cultural sustainability.
