Place Branding and Heritage Tourism in The American West For over 150 years, the American West continues to be romanticized, idealized and fictionalized, through film, television, popular literature and more recently through heritage branding and travel both in print and in social media. Today, readers of specialist magazines and websites dealing with historically western themes continue to romanticize events, objects, personalities and places through feature stories, advertising, forums and travel advice, which inform of a past which has been enriched and, and in a Bhatian sense, colonized by the language of commercialization and promotion in order to sell clothing, package tours, firearms and promote heritage events and museums. TRUE WEST MAGAZINE, published since 1954 and which is the most widely read and longest-running publication of its type, has allowed access to their archives to explore and assess the types of discourse and lexicogrammatical features (specialist terms or archaic labels) that this repackaging of the past for the present proposes. A thorough examination of the generic features at play in both the print and online versions will be explored and presented in this paper. Evidence of destination branding, city branding, along with event and heritage branding will be explored using frameworks borrowed from CDA, critical Genre Analysis and Corpus-Assisted Discourse Studies (CADS).
