Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study investigates elements of black tourism, and visitor motivations. Our goal is to reach an understanding of visitor motivations, and how dark sites and their symbols may have an impact on its visitors. Through theories of semiotics, classification, and historical processes, we have reached a satisfying conclusion, but theoretical data was not our only tool to reach this conclusion. Relevant research questions, study cases and methods played a big role in our project report. We used the qualitative and quantitative methods, to help us reach our conclusion. We then concluded that symbols placed at dark sites actually can have an important affect on the visitor, and visitor motivations. According to our conclusion, there is a significant relationship between symbols at dark sites and visitor motivations.
