Art Vis Culture & Tourism

Spring 2020

Taught By: Rosemary O'Neill

Section: A

CRN: 3740

Credits: 3

Although one can argue that the relationships between art, visual culture and tourism have a long history, it is in the modern and late modern period that heterogeneous studies in areas such as visual culture, art history, sociology, anthropology and cultural geography have investigated and generated theories about the nature of tourism; the tourist in relationship to visual representation, and the means by which culture is generated from within that context. Tourism, as a relational event, also shapes the construction of space and encounters with implications for and on those who consume place, object, and experience and those who produce culture in tourist locales. This course will examine the change from travel to tourism in the early modern period, the social and cultural construction of mass tourism, and theories of tourism related to consumption, representation, and sites. Pathway: Visual Studies
