Conference main theme information:

Theme: Understanding leisure in a complex world: Promoting a Critical Leisure Studies

This conference will examine how leisure academics, policy makers and practitioners can develop and harness their subject area to help address significant issues in an increasingly complex world, with its varied and contrasting challenges.

 Our conference theme addresses two intertwined issues:

•         that social, cultural and economic diversity and polarisation is increasing across, between and within global regions; and

•         that this complex environment presents an opportunity for leisure academics to develop a more critical and inclusive leisure studies.

The key question we have for delegates of this conference is where does leisure fit amongst these significant issues and what can leisure studies offer in response to the challenges our society is now facing? We have argued for many years the importance and benefits that can be accrued to society from leisure at a community, family and individual level. How does this now fit within societies affected by such extensive social problems? Can leisure itself in the form of ‘dark’ or ‘deviant’ leisure be part of the problem? Through this conference, we call for a critical interrogation of the place and value of leisure within a rapidly changing global society.
