Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Students learn critical race/social justice analyses of various forms of tourism--leisure, sex, roots/heritage, dark, reality, medical, trophy, eco-green, queer, celebrity, humanitarian, and revolutionary--as intimate economies within local-global networks of race and gender power relations. Students examine case studies to identify modes of governmentality. Students analyze how tourism (pleasure) practices reproduce or disrupt racialized-gendered neoliberal subjects and collective identities. Students evaluate and debate arguments regarding the ethicality / social justice implications of tourism.
