Historias 126 – State of the Field of Tourism in Latin America

Published by dwalcher on

Our State of the Field series returns – this time focusing on tourism!  Join Carlos as he chats with Drs. Anadelia Romo, Elizabeth Manley, and Andrew Grant Wood about their recent anthology, The Business of Leisure: Tourism History in Latin America and the Caribbean.  The group surveys a wide variety of important themes, including the business of tourism, sex tourism, the myriad ways that race and gender interplay in the enterprise, the privileged role of international visitors, and the environmental effects of leisure travel.  The group also asks what alternative versions of tourism might look like.  Check it out!
