Reflections on the relationship between gender and race in tourism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter suggests that the study of whiteness is one way in which gendered power relationships in tourism can be understood. This argument is supported with an analysis of two films which explore white female sex tourism to countries in the Global South. It is argued that the sources of power inherent in these sexual encounters are inextricably intertwined with racist notions of white privilege which are exercised by both men and women.
