Marxism and Tourism: a difficult relation.

  • Maximiliano Emanuel Korstanje
Palabras clave: Tourism, Consumption, Rites of PAssage, Modernity


This essay review centers on the role of mobilities within the nation-state, as well as the conceptual limitations of Marxism and Marxists to understand the genuine nature of tourism. Marxists, since they never turned their attention to ancient forms of tourism, grasped the possibilities tourism would serve as a platform for alienation and submission. Here we place such a posture under the critical lens of scrutiny, laying the foundations towards a new conceptualization of tourism.
