Sociology of Tourism (ISSOC-399)
Globalization has led to increased flows of individuals consuming tourist spaces. This class examines the production and consumption of contemporary tourist spaces and the sociological relevance of these processes. We will also discuss the social impacts of tourism, the differing typologies of tourism and then finally, the positive and negative social impacts of tourism upon the tourist destination. Understanding the relationship between representations of tourist spaces and how our tourist experiences are enmeshed in what Berger calls, ways of seeing, will be key.
