This is the most recent iteration of my course "Men, Women and Travel: A History of World Tourism." It focuses on gender and tourism, as reflected in the readings and takes a world perspective, focusing on travel and travel accounts from the earliest through the Grand Tour of the early modern period, and the growth of the tourism industry in the last century. Comments are always welcome.
"In this spledind book on the growth of tourism, the reader travels with Gordon to key sites of memory in twentieth-century France. Drawing on French and German archivesw, Parisian police records, contemporary guid books, films, diaries, and interviews, Gordon displays a sazzling command of European history, tourism, and memory studies."
