Summary
"Every year, hundreds of thousands of young people pack their bags to study or volunteer abroad. Well-intentioned and curious Westerners-brought up to believe that international travel broadens our horizons-travel to low-income countries to learn about people and cultures different from their own. But while travel abroad can provide much-needed perspective, it can also be deeply unsettling, confusing, and discomforting. Travelers can find themselves unsure about how to think or speak about the differences in race or culture they find, even though these differences might have fueled their desire to travel in the first place. Beyond Guilt Trips helps us to unpack our Western baggage, so that we are better able to understand our uncomfortable feelings about who we are, where we come from, and how much we have. Through engaging personal travel stories and thought-provoking questions about the ethics and politics of our travel, Beyond Guilt Trips shows readers ways to grapple with their discomfort and navigate differences through accountability and connection. Dr. Anu Taranath is a speaker, facilitator, and educator. As faculty at the University of Washington Seattle, she teaches about global literature, race and equity, and directs study abroad programs on human rights themes. She's received the Seattle Weekly's 'Best of Seattle' designation, the University of Washington's Distinguished Teaching Award, and multiple Fulbright fellowships. A consultant known for 'pushing the conversation without pushing folks away,' she works with people in colleges, libraries, businesses, community organizations, and government agencies to deepen equity, social justice, and global consciousness."--
