Volltext: PDF



Anthropologists and tourists seem to have a lot in common. The article explores similarities as well as differences between anthropological field research and tourism and relates this to current debates on the impacts of postmodern theory on fieldwork methodology and on the concept of culture. It is suggested that future anthropological research on tourism should investigate the creation of new cultural forms in the context of interaction between tourists and locals in order to overcome the conventional bias that attributes agency mainly to tourists.
