dc.description.abstractThe following qualitative study will examine how local, national, and international changes in perceptions occur due to tourism using a case study of Cusco, Peru. While Cusco shares many standard traits of a bustling tourist town, it also boasts another element, that of a highly promoted Incan history, which complicates the resulting social interactions. Through Edward Bruners' (2005) theoretical frame of a borderzone, I will examine how locals interact at an individual level due to larger influences. The individual actors call upon this narrative for a variety of reasons, including their own identity formation, to improve their economic standing, and for positive reinforcement from others.en_US
