Title: Event and Sporting tourism in South America and other developing Countries.
Author: Korstanje, Maximiliano
Abstract: Undoubtedly, the second international division of labour has generated material asymmetries among nations. Some countries have certainly grown to a rapidity that others cannot reach. This inevitably created a dichotomy between centre and its periphery. Following this argument, the conspicuous consumption of leisure (Veblen) paved the ways for the advent for the commoditization of sites, most of them, in developing countries (Turner & Ash, 1975). The theory centre/periphery explained not only the backwardness of part of the world, but also the failure of international organism of credit to improve the situation of developing countries. If the anthropology was the discipline that legitimated definitely the expansion of colonial order during XIXth century, tourism and its cultural consumption facilitated the submission of peripheral countries respecting to the capital. The success of development theory, after 1947, was not only to create a barrier between capitalism and Communism in Europe, but also in engendering a need in the rest of the world. Being “developed” was from these days onwards, more than a narrative.
