Tourist Nation: The History of American Tourism

Development of a four-part documentary series exploring the history and impact of American tourism.

We are requesting funds to develop a 4-part documentary series for public television about the history of American tourism. The series will tell the amazing story of how a nineteenth-century pastime for the wealthy grew into what is arguably today the world's largest industry, touching the lives of almost everyone for better or for worse. The series will showcase recent humanities scholarship while exploring a facet of our history that is largely unknown to the public: how and why tourism shaped our understanding of our nation and the modern world.
