01/02 - Dark Tourism: An Immoral Promotion of Death & Disaster?

 

Although not new, in many societies, visiting sites associated with death is, and has been, a considerable part of the tourist experience; as this can be seen with the existence of pilgrimage, one of the earliest forms of tourism. However, the commercial marketing of such locations to encourage tourist visitations is justly debated. The focus of this course was to explore the individual and societal motivations and fascinations with such experiences, as well as to better understand the impact that such tourism has on country and city image.
