'Selling The Rain', Resisting the Sale: Resistant Identities and the Conflict Over Tourism in Goa

Title:'Selling The Rain', Resisting the Sale: Resistant Identities and the Conflict Over Tourism in Goa
Author:Paul Routledge
Publication:Social & Cultural Geography / Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group
Enumeration:Vol. 2, No. 2 pp. 221 - 240 /June 2001
Abstract:This paper discusses the development of state of Goa as a tourist site within India and examines the economic, cultural and environmental impacts of such tourism development upon Goan communities. In so doing, the paper argues that while Goa has become a dispensable space for the exigencies of contemporary tourist development it has also engendered various forms of resistance to this process. The paper utilizes Manuel Castells' notion of 'resistance identity' and David Harvey's notion of 'militant particularism' to interpret some of these resistances. In Goa, these have taken the form of 'active minorities' whose most immediate source of self-recognition and autonomous organization is their locality: resistance is practised, at least in part, as a defensive articulation of identity to protect collective resources.
