      With apologies for cross-postings

      Attached is:  A Discussion Paper on Recent Research Trends and Concepts: Heritage Tourism, Dissonant Heritage Tourism, Thanatourism, Dark Tourism, Holocaust Tourism

      It can be downloaded from the following web site:



      The paper reviews recent research trends and literature. In particular, it discusses four fairly new concepts and/or research traditions which have characterized the current debate over the visitation of places/tourism to sites with a ‘shadowed’ past: heritage tourism, dissonant heritage tourism, thanatourism, dark tourism, holocaust tourism. The purpose of the paper is to broaden the discussion and to present also recent geographic literature from the U.S.
