Tourism is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing industries. This course examines the impact of tourism on the contemporary world, including the political economy of tourist development, the tourist gaze, commodified "authenticity" and cultural conflicts in tourism. Specific topics include development issues, invented traditions, the marketing of national landscapes, "other" cultures as theme parks, gender and ethnicity, tourist photography and sex tourism - all within the premise of tourism as a consumer activity.
