Conference aims

The Conference Committee invites the submission of abstracts for papers that align with the aims of the conference:

  1. To facilitate critical and creative dialogue that responds to the sociopolitical complexity of leisure practices, formations, and organisation in contemporary life.
  2. To invite diverse disciplinary perspectives, methodological and theoretical approaches from within, and beyond the field, to situate the study of leisure within in a post-disciplinary future.

The conference seeks to mobilise critical and creative insights, relationships and collaborations between academics, and also with non-academic participants who have been involved in co-created research (artists, activists, policy makers and professionals).

Conference themes

Six themes have been identified around leisure problematics, contexts, and interrelated matters of concern. These are:

  • Digital and physical cultures
  • Embodied health and well-being
  • Critical pedagogies in public and education spaces
  • Co-creating research: innovative methodologies
  • Inequality, power, and change
  • Sustainable communities: people and places
