The politics of anti-Zionism and racial democracy in homeland tourism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Karam explores the phenomenon of "homeland tourism" among Brazilians of Syrian and Lebanese descent. He explores ways in which trips to the homeland are often used as opportunities to promote anti-Zionism. While some heritage tourists reproduce this discourse, others are critical of it. Using Brazilian nationalist precepts that are typically exclusionary, many tourists undermine the ideology often presented to them on these trips.
