Dozent/in: Michael Dellwing, Paul Lauer

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 14:15 - 15:45 | 03.04.2023 - 07.07.2023 | C 16.129 Seminarraum | C 16.129

Inhalt: Travelling, we assume, broadens the mind. It means learning about other cultures. But does it? In this seminar we will investigate when and how travelling can facilitate a meaningful dialogue between cultures. We will be taking a qualitative approach that begins by exploring our own experiences of travel before moving on to consider reflections by travel writers (and influencers), the voices of those we visit, and finally the practices of those offering "cultural tours". Theory from such topics as everyday life sociology, multiculturality, reflexivity, and the "tourist gaze" is meant to underpin your gathering and interpreting of empirical material as, in very small groups of two to three, you develop your own concept of culturally meaningful travel and apply it to a tour of your own design.
