Abstrakt

In this article, we explore tourism development as an ongoing becoming
with the world. We describe how the current development of tourism in
East Greenland is entangled with the community, concerns and
collaboration and draw on Haraway’s concept of worlding to analyze this
further. The article illustrates and discusses how we can find ways to re-conceptualize tourism in a way that accounts for the ontological
complexity of tourism while not succumbing to unwarranted reductions
and simplifications. By turning away from finding ‘the right way’ to ‘fix’
tourism and instead embracing its troublesome nature, we seek to avoid
binary narratives that praise or deem tourism or the communities in
which it takes place.
