Wordle™ Me This: What Is Capturing the Attention of Readers on the Subject of Voluntourism?

Over the past two and a half years, a growing number of authors have inked articles on the subject of voluntourism, with some of them garnering significant recognition for their efforts - notably, Ian Birrell, Ritwik Deo, Dorinda Elliott, Ossob Mohamud, Juliana Rufhus, and Richard Stupart. These authors' insights have attracted the attention of millions of readers worldwide and they have been "liked" and "tweeted" and "plussed" by tens of thousands of those readers. For this issue of Wisom & Insight, we offer a Wordle™ pictorial of each of these articles to give you a graphic visualization of the key terms appearing in each and a brief set of statistics about each article.

Articles appear in chronological order, from earliest to latest publishing dates.
