Description

Looking Through the Lens of Dark Tourism: Canadian Residential Schools through the European Model

Dark tourism is not a new concept, although not widely known, in North America. Jackie Jansen van Doorn looked extensively at dark tourism sites throughout Europe with a primary focus on Holocaust sites. She explored how these models could be best applied to residential schools. Through graduate work at the University of York, United Kingdom, she developed the proposition that the techniques of dark tourism could enable, Canadians to further their knowledge about the atrocities of residential schools and thereby create a more sustainable stride for reconciliation.
