This interdisciplinary project addresses the often contentious relationship between the presentation of place and its experience through a study of urban tourism in the late-nineteenth-century American West. It investigates encounters in four rapidly expanding cities: Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco, paying careful attention to tourist impressions as often as the claims of city officials and entrepreneurs attempting to shape cites for personal profit.
