Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Designed for the general student population, this course specifically appeals to students traveling abroad, or who in the future will work with diverse communities (for example, students with interests in medicine, law, labor, government, business, the hospitality industry, or in the fields of gender, queer, or ethnic studies). Serving as an introduction to the critical inquiries and scholarly fields of the English department,   the course uses literature and popular culture, alongside literary, social, and cultural theory to consider how people from different cultures encounter and experience each other. Exploring travel and tourism from multiple perspectives including dark, disaster, and eco- tourisms, the course examines a history of racial representation, dating to the colonial era and that resonates in twenty-first century depictions of race, class, gender, and other markers of "difference."
