Studying tourism is no vacation. To study one of the fastest growing international industries means understanding that tourism has tremendous impacts on the global economy, on the natural and cultural environments, and on the individual lives of the tourists and those they visit. This course will investigate what motivates tourists to travel and also what enables them to do so. We will examine not only the social, economic, environmental and cultural consequences of tourism on host communities but those communities’ responses to it as well. Is there such a thing as culturally and environmentally sustainable tourism The course will explore key research in the field, using case studies in the Pacific, Asia, Africa and the Americas to anchor our investigations
