This course will consider the historical roots of today’s rapidly changing nature and cultural tourism industries. We will review relevant theories and methods for the analysis of safari hunting, extreme adventure tourism, socially conscious and low ecological impact tourism, and participation in ritual practice. The course includes both films (streamed via CTOOLS) and assigned readings, and will work to instill critical reading and viewing skills. These assignments focus on practices of consumption by tourists, expectations and challenges among residents whom tourists visit, and power dynamics of tourist/local encounters. The final few weeks of the seminar entails reading entire books, ethnographic monographs about these forms of tourism, each of which integrates history, social theory and political-economic analysis. Students will produce two papers for the course, counting for 30% and 40% of the grade, respectively. A presentation of one week’s materials, and overall participation count for the remaining 30%.
