About this Unit
In this unit students approach tourism as a cultural and social phenomenon and tourism industries, tourist behaviour, the tourist experience and tourism impacts are examined through a socio-cultural lens. Considering tourism as an agent of social change, the unit explores the interplay between tourism, mobility and globalisation, tourism and development, and tourism and world events. The unit will also unpack some of the common motivations for leisure travel, explore the role of tourism in everyday life, and examine the interconnections between the media, consumer culture, visual culture and the tourist experience.
