Call for Chapters – Leisure and Forced Migration: Lives Lived in the Asylum System

Editors Dr Nicola De Martini Ugolotti (Department of Sport & Physical Activity) and Dr Jayne Caudwell (Department of Events & Leisure) are seeking chapters for their Routledge commissioned book.

In the collection, leisure will be considered in its broadest sense to include practices and contexts such as recreational physical activities and active leisure, expressive and artistic endeavours, moments and places of consumption and sociality, cultural and religious events, the everyday, routine and mundane.

Building on the contribution of critical leisure studies perspectives on class, gender, race and ethnicity, and migration, we welcome work from multiple disciplinary perspectives, including sociology, cultural geography, gender studies, migration studies, anthropology and the humanities. In particular, we invite contributions from non-western and global south contexts, and from community activists/organizers.
