TOURISM AS DEVELOPMENT PEDAGOGIES
This collection of theoretical interventions examines tourism as a 'public pedagogy' of development. I frame tourism as important avenue through which everyday people learn of the politics of development. Tourism is a site of development (as in volunteer tourism) or teaches the inequalities that development seeks to remedy (e.g. slum tourism). In these articles, I take seriously the possibility that some kinds of tourism can be radically pedagogical; however, I'm generally pessimistic that tourism is a colonial tool that naturalizes dispossession.
This project is tentatively completed.
