fictional encounters between “hosts” and “guests”: Read Hugh B. Cave’s “The Unwelcome Tourists,
Read three articles and answer these two questions. One page for one question. Thank you!
1. Analyzing fictional encounters between “hosts” and “guests”: Read Hugh B. Cave’s “The Unwelcome Tourists,” which was published in Saturday Evening Post in 1957, and
“India, India,” winner of a short story contest a few years ago. (Unfortunately, I can’t find the author or the date of this story, as the website on which it first
appeared has been taken down. It’s now showing up on this Over 50s Forum, but still with little identifying information.)
How do the two writers characterize the U.S. tourists in these stories?
How are “the natives” presented?
Both stories focus on the interactions between “hosts” and “guests.” Some tourism scholars suggest that such interactions are usually characterized by unequal status
relationships and, often, mutual suspicion. How would you characterize the interactions in these two fictional stories?
2. Working in the Tourism Industry: Read “Working at the Rat,” from Inside the Mouse (1995) and “Below the Passenger Deck,” from Cruise Ship Blues (2002). Do you see
any similarities in workers’ experiences as Disney costume characters and as “below the deck” cruise ship workers?
