ANTH-4770 (3) Anthropology of Tourism

Introduces students to anthropological theories on tourism and considers those theories in the contexts of the varied sites and forms of tourism practiced around the world today. We will ask: why do people tour? Where do they go? And most centrally: How do the hosts to tourism feel about these outside visitors? Having been exposed to questions of globalization, development, belonging, race, gender, and desire, students will then be asked to reflect upon and theorize their own touristic experiences. Recommended prereq., ANTH 2100.
