Constructing Cultural Tourism: John Ruskin and the Tourist Gaze

constructing cultural tourism walton john k hanley keith

He worked to have them participate in a shared heritage which was specifically pre-Renaissance and Christian, and to that end endeavoured to reduce the sense of differentiation in time and place to a condition that was unified by a shared moral tradition. It will also greatly benefit those whose studies include interpretation, leisure and outdoor education. But in order to locate the superior social model by which his present was to be judged, and arrive at the positions advocated in his teachings, he went in search of places which still represented values and potential experiences opposed to those of the developing industrial capitalism of 19th-century Britain. However, it delivers far more than this; it brings a rich tapestry of historical experience to the understanding of contemporary European tourism. Ruskin was a major figure in setting the agenda and directing the gaze, not only for the upper- and middle-class British tourists who played such an important part in the consolidation of international tourism in the age of the railway, but also for the emergent working-class explorers of hills and countryside within Britain in the late 19th and early 20th century.

He comes from, as well as goes to, the ownership of a cultural identity without which there would be no agency of interaction in all his encounters, enabling him to go on adding to and modifying a set of shared meanings and values. You should start right now! Tourism requires that you see conventional things, and that you see them in a conventional way. He has written monographs on Wordsworth and Ruskin, has edited many essay collections on nineteenth-century indisciplinarity, including, with Greg Kucich, Nineteenth-Century Worlds: Global Formations Past and Present Routledge, 2008 , and co-edits, with David Thomas, the quarterly journal Nineteenth-Century Contexts. This rigorous and incisive critique of the role of Ruskin, the renowned 19th century polymath, is beautifully illustrated with pictorial and textual references; it is a must for scholars of tourism. Review: Best known as a writer and art critic, this study makes a compelling case for the importance of Ruskin as a key figure in inspiring and shaping cultural tourism whether in Europe or in England for the serious minded of all social classes.

Jamieson, Ashland University Table of Contents. As transformations of pilgrimage, less secularised than MacCannell argues, his travels to the pre-modern countryside and the architecture of the Middle Ages offer the restoration of insights into integrated communities of belief. He has published extensively on histories of regions, identities, resorts and tourism, especially in Britain, Spain, Belgium, France and the United States, and he contributes to debates on the role of history and 'heritage' in the regeneration of coastal resorts. Recommended for specialists, this work will create interest and debate among those working in the expanding field of tourism studies.

Constructing Cultural Tourism, Keith Hanley John K Walton

This could, he urged, turn out to be the radical origin of his own re-imagined national tradition, though one which had become an alien culture for his contemporary British traveller. He is, as Urry recognises, a returning traveller Urry: 202. Hanley and Walton provide an historical and literary examination of Ruskin's influence on the development of cultural tourism--an aesthetic and novel appreciation of what the tourist sees rather than racing from place to place to visit as much as possible. But that cultural enlargement was conceived as a reform of 19th-century British values, to be achieved by the restitution of what was an other Europe, represented for example by Swiss pastoralism, northern French Gothic and early Renaissance Italian painting. However, it delivers far more than this; it brings a rich tapestry of historical experience to the understanding of contemporary European tourism.

This rigorous and incisive critique of the role of Ruskin, the renowned 19th century polymath, is beautifully illustrated with pictorial and textual references; it is a must for scholars of tourism. This book is an interdisciplinary collaboration between a literary critic and cultural historian, which examines and recovers a radical and still urgent challenge to the industrialisation of cultural tourism from the work of John Ruskin. As a radical anti-capitalist critic, he had to travel against his age. Though a gifted draughtsman, scientific commentator and celebrated writer of Romantic prose, it was as a critic of art, architecture and society that he achieved his chief cultural function and influence. He previously held chairs at Lancaster University, the University of Central Lancashire and Leeds Metropolitan University. We begin by arguing that incorporating a Ruskin perspective into tourism studies has the potential to change the face and agenda of the discipline.
