Call for Chapters: Dark Tourism and Pilgrimage

Daniel H. Olsen, Brigham Young University

Maximiliano Korstanje, University of Palmero

 

In recent years there has been a growth in the academic literature related to travel to sites related to tragedy and death. Labeled as dark tourism or thanatourism, this research has focused on typologizing dark tourism supply and demand, the ethical considerations regarding the commodification of death, as the ways in which death and tragedy are presented to a post-modern consumer society, and how dark tourism sites can be used for reconciliation and healing.

American Studies Association (ASA) Conference, November 8-11, Atlanta, GA.

In December 2017, Speaker of the US House of Representatives Paul Ryan said, “Baby boomers are retiring—I did my part, but we need to have higher birth rates in this country.” Increasing the national birth rate, Ryan claimed, would be “the new economic challenge” for the United States. Meanwhile, the Congressional Republicans led by Ryan passed a tax bill that failed to renew CHIP, the federal health insurance program for children. Caught between pronatalist arguments and a deep skepticism of the welfare state, Republican discourse continues to bypass questions of reproductive oppression—and reproductive justice.
