    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of the course, the student will be able to:

    • synthesise the basic elements of the geography of tourism applied to urban contexts and social dynamics;
    • adopt a critical perspective on tourism processes;
    • identify the multi-scalarity of tourism phenomena and their implications on territories;
    • identify and understand contemporary challenges to the promotion of territories;
    • analyse and understand the development processes of different forms of tourism in relation to contemporary challenges;
    • argue and describe how the valorisation, protection and promotion of cultural and environmental assets is an articulated and complex process.

    TEACHING METHODS

    The course consists of lectures, for a total of 36 hours (equal to 6 CFU), aimed at presenting and studying the main notions of the geography of tourism through the use of practical examples.

    The lectures include the reading and critical discussion in the classroom of scientific articles (please note that some articles may be in English), delivered at the beginning of the course. Students will be invited to actively participate in the debate and analysis of the proposed articles.

    Occasionally, scholars or experts in the discipline (Italian and foreign) may also be invited to hold seminars to deepen specific aspects of the issues dealt with.

    Attending students will have the opportunity to produce case studies through group or individual work, which will have to be returned in the form of an oral presentation during the course. Punctual information will be provided in lessons and via the teaching Web Classroom.

    For students with DSA certifications or specific disabilities, compensatory or dispensatory measures are ensured, while taking care of the acquisition of the skills and knowledge required for teaching.

    If the epidemiological situation requires it, the teaching will be carried out remotely on Teams, according to the specifications that will be published promptly in the AulaWeb instance. 

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    The main themes will focus on two macro-themes:

    - Heritage and cities

    • urban branding;
    • from the creative city to the shared city: effects on tourism and heritage

    - Heritage and climate change:

    • cultural heritage at risk in Italy and in the world in numbers;
    • climate change and intangible heritage;
    • climate change and tangible heritage;
    • land grabbing for tourism;
    • tourism mobility and climate change;
    • carbon footprint and tourism;
    • transforming tourism to tackle climate change.

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    The exam is oral.

    Group work, possibly carried out by attending students, even if discussed during the course, forms an integral part of the oral exam.
    For students with DSA certifications or specific disabilities, compensatory or dispensatory measures are ensured, while taking care of the acquisition of the skills and knowledge required for teaching.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The oral exam will allow to evaluate:
    - mastery and deepening of knowledge,

    Evaluation criteria are:
    - the quality of the oral communication,
    - the correct use of the appropriate vocabulary,
    - the ability of critical analysis, even on possible cases discussed.

    The students who carry out the group work will also be assessed on the quality of the paper as regards the content and formal aspects.
