Description
Week 8 Part 1: what is the Holy Land experience? Why does Wharton refer to the holy land experience as a “spectacle” and insists that it is not a relic, not a replica, and not even a reproduction of Jerusalem? You do not have to agree with her. CRITICALLY THINK ABOUT THIS!  Living beautiful museum (The holy land experience, Orlando)  The point was the founder made it as a point of touching, feeling, seeing something about Jerusalem and as a mean of education (part 2)  The holy land as a spectacle – the fans/tourists go to see it all happen.

How Wharton distinguishes between the holy land experience (the theme park - unitary) and the Holy Sepulchre (shrine - heterogeneous). What is the difference between those two?  Its old, broken up, dirty  The theme park – you have to pay to see it, the immaculate cleanliness.) pilgrims vs tourists  Expectations of what to see when you see the real place and the theme park.  The marks of the pilgrims who have been there before over thousands of years vs the cleanliness  Who is going there?
