Erik Cohen wrote an excellent article in 1972, which has been referenced by most publications on tourists I’ve read. “Towards a Sociology of International Tourist” is a quick read, and will shape how you view the tourism industry and those who leave their physical home environments forever. I highly recommend, even for the casual reader. This one is very nice but may require you to create an account (for free), otherwise here is a badly formatted but free access pdf online!
I’ve finished the final draft of my research proposal and am just waiting on feedback from a mentor, and then I’m excited to share it with y’all!
