12 December 2018 || 14:30-16:00 || Speaking of Genocide: Lithuanian ‘Occupation’ Museums and Foucault’s Discursive Formation: MH 204

Dr Craig Wight is a Lecturer in Hospitality and Tourism, and Programme Leader for the undergraduate Hospitality Management programmes at the University’s School of Tourism and Hospitality. Wight will discuss an alternative conceptual perspective for carrying out research into “dark tourism” by presenting a discourse analysis of Lithuanian occupation-themed museums using Foucault’s concept of ‘discursive formation’ from ‘Archaeology of Knowledge’. Tourism visits to sites associated to varying degrees with death and dying have for some time inspired academic debate and research into what has come to be popularly described as ‘dark tourism’. It is hoped that his study will motivate others to follow a discourse-analytical approach to research in order to further understand the critical role of museums in public culture when it comes to shaping knowledge about ‘inconvenient’ pasts.
