Focus Questions:

– What is the importance of travel? Is it important?

– What is the gaze, and how does it shape our travel encounters?

– How does tourism relate to the notion of departure?

-What is the difference between a traveler and a tourist? What does this say about value judgements?

– According to Boorstin, how has the notion of adventure changed, and how does the ‘pseudo-event’ come about?

– What is the distinction between the authentic and the inauthentic? Is Disneyland a ‘real’ place?
