Proposed 2012 APS international study tour to Peru
|Format||Study Group Network|
|Presenters||Tour leaders: Christopher Carter and Isabel Stepanik|
|Description||An introduction to the cultures of Aouth America - from Prehistroic to Colonial. Visit Inca sites including Cusco, Machu Picchu and Ollantaytambo; Colonial sites including the historic centres of Lima, Arequipa and Cusco; the Church of Andayhuaylillas and the Monastrey at Arequipa.
Experience spectacular landscapes including the high peaks of the Andes, the Sacred Valley of the Inca, Lake Titicaca and the High Puna (Plateau); the Amazon jungle and its amazing wildlife, all the while experiencing the indigenous cultures of this continent including shamanic ceremonies, weaving workshops, local markets and Alpaca farms.
The CPD theme will examine and discuss the impact of tourism on traditional cultures from a psychological viewpoint. We will consider how the indigenous population have adapted to changes brought about by the commercialisation of their culture. We will then consider how this has enhamced the prospects of some groups while others display significant negative impacts. We will also discuss the values that Indigenous peoples place on their own culture and how that is used or abused through tourism.
