Seminar: Re-visiting the Tourist Gaze
How does the tourist see the world? What institutions and images, devices and designs, shape this tourist worldview? And how does this tourist gaze organize, mediate and shape how tourism is performed?
These are interesting and important questions for any traveler and tourism scholar to consider. With the help of Professor Jonas Larsen, co-author of the seminal text The Tourist Gaze 3.0, we will re-visit the idea of the tourist gaze by exploring the enduring influence of the concept, how it has evolved over time to included discussions on embodied performativity, visual media, design and alternative futures, and the ways this concept remains an important concept for today’s multiplied, multi-cultural and mobile tourism world.
*This seminar will be conducted in English.
