Adam Kaul (Sociology, Anthropology and Social Welfare) has a forthcoming article in a special edition of the journal Tourist Studies.  The six articles that will appear in the special edition were selected from among the papers presented at a conference held in Liverpool, England last summer focusing on music and tourism.  Kaul's article is entitled "Music on the Edge: Busking at the Cliffs of Moher and the Commodification of a Musical Landscape".  It extends his analysis of the fraught tensions between tourism economics and the production of music in the West of Ireland, and it is the second in a series of three articles he is writing specifically about tourism at the Cliffs of Moher, one of the most visited sites in the country.  He wonders late at night if he should have just written a book about it instead.

Reference to two books written by Tom Mayer (History): "The Trial of Galileo" and "The Roman Inquisition: A Papal Bureaucracy and Its Law in the Age of Galileo" was made in a story by Adam Gopnik this month in The New Yorker. Read the story HERE.
