Final Essay Assignment
The difference between sex tourism and romance tourism is more than just a gender distinction. In your essay compare and contrast these forms of tourism while thinking about notions of:
1) 1st world – 3rd world relations
2) Sex versus love
3) The imagination of the ‘other’.
The instructions tell you that the assignment should be about tourISM not romantic relationships. It should be addressing the MACRO; power, culture, history of the INDUSTRY that takes into account 1st-3rd world relations, sex versus love as a marketing tool and the imagination of the 'other' as the 'orientalism' the West imagines.
You will be the ones creating knowledge now. Organize your essay in a similar fashion as the articles you have read this semester so that your paper flows in a logical way. 1) State what you are interested in analyzing (the larger philosophical question). 2) Then present your themes one at a time and do the analysis of each before moving on to the next. There should be a logical flow to your work building to the logical conclusion that you are trying to proof. 3) This may take more than one sitting and one attempt so make sure you give yourself the time to do it properly. 4) Incorporate our concepts to help develop your analysis. (This is very different from shoving in ‘vocabulary’ words in sentences, btw).
