Dark Tourism: Morality and New Moral Spaces
This chapter explores ethics of dark tourism consumption within a secular construction of morality. In so doing, the chapter draws upon Durkheim and the concept of 'collective effervescence' and its relevance to moral panic discourse. Ultimately, the chapter critically discusses issues of moral fragility and locates dark tourism consumption as a source of moral conversation in society's collective engagement with the emotional capacities of people.
