The Père-Lachaise Cemetery: Between Touristic Experience and Heterotopic Consumption

This videography offers an ethnographic analysis of the Père-Lachaise cemetery, a major tourist site of Paris. The film shows how the sacred and profane dimensions of consumption are entangled in the visiting experience through a series of symbolic behaviors and rituals that make the cemetery a heterotopia. https://vimeo.com/41282999 Password: MinStoraDag2012
