Harry Mitsidis: Dark Tourism and Traveller Responsibilities

07 september 2023 19:00 - 21:00
Through an exploration of various cases of dark tourism, the listener is encouraged to consider the moral obligations of the traveller and what the limit is between exploration and understanding on the one hand and voyeurism and exploitation on the other hand.
The case studies that will be examined are
1. Sierra Leone – Bunce Island slavery site
2. Vietnam – Con Dao
3. Yugoslavia/Croatia – Jasenovac and Vukovar
4. United States – Oklahoma City Bombing
5. Cambodia – Tuol Sleng prison
6. Russia – Beslan tragedy
7. Indonesia – Aceh Tsunami sites
8. Somalia – Mogadishu
For each one of these cases, with multiple photos and an explanation of the historical background of each as a Dark Tourism site, a discussion on the ethics of visiting will be encouraged. Following the presentation, a lengthy Q&A will follow, which should take into account other examples of Dark Tourism.
