Course Description

This interdisciplinary course will take a critical look at the political, social, cultural, economic and other impacts of various forms of tourism in the Caribbean. Links between the current dependency on tourism many Caribbean nations have due to globalization, and historical patterns of colonialism and servitude that persist today and are replicated in many tourism practices, will be examined. Students will be exposed to various elements of diversity relative to Caribbean tourism including racial, ethnic, economic, and sexual. Forms of resistance, political and cultural, against mass tourism will be addressed, as well as new developments in sustainable and ethical tourism.
