ANTH 342 - Heritage and Museums
A course designed to provide the student with a new understanding of the place of museums, heritage sites, and tourism in human society and culture. Topics may include the many meanings of “heritage”, how tourist attractions grab and hold the attention of travelers, how museums and interpretive centers portray different items and events, what sorts of impacts heritage tourism has on local people and customs, and even how animals are displayed or utilized as performers in museums, zoos, and places like Sea World. When you complete this course, you will never approach traveling, heritage, and museums in quite the same way again. Students must have at least sophomore standing to register for this course.
