Tourism and Development in Yunnan


Yunnan Through Foreign Students' Eyes: Volume 1, Tourism and Development in Yunnan. Tourism and Development in Yunnan is the first volume of the Yunnan Through Foreign Students' Eyes series which examines the unique cultural and physical landscape of Yunnan Province, China. This volume contains essays that explore the promises and perils that accompany Yunnan's tourism development, including impacts on local peoples and the environments which they inhabit. Others discuss development issues, such as China's reproductive policy, deaf education in Yunnan, rural microlending projects, agricultual change, and music education as a means of inculcating social norms and values. Geographically and ethnographically, these papers encompass a cross-section of Yunnan's many ecological zones and minority peoples. The Yunnan Through Foreign Students' Eyes series is a collaborative project between the China/Yunnan Study Abroad Program of the School for International Training (SIT) based in Brattleboro, Vermont, USA and Yunnan Normal University based in Kunming, China. These papers were written by US undergraduate college and university students studying abroad on SIT's China/Yunnan Program and were based on fieldwork in Yunnan during one-month Independent Study Projects.
