Travel magazines, globalization and the consumer gaze

Ljungberg, Emilia LU (2010) International Congress of Historical Sciences (Travel as a force of historical change)
Abstract
Travel writing, from high culture to popular texts, has often been interpreted as giving expression to colonial discourses and desires. The tourist is imagined to have a colonial gaze in relation to the exotic destination. However, in my paper I would like to argue that travel writing, and tourism, could also be read in other ways, and to situate popular travel writing in a context of globalization discourses and consumerism.
