Following their 2017-2018 theme, “The Journey,” the Humanities Center in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts at CSU, Chico offers a panel discussion that digs into the meaning and nuance of pilgrimage, sacred journey, and tourism. In examining these journeys into the sacred and profane, along with the motives behind such journeys, the panel investigates the question, “Is there a difference between pilgrims and tourists?” As the panel examines and juxtaposes various types of purpose-based travel, ancient and new, questions are raised and explored in a multidisciplinary, humanities-focused backdrop.
