A One Day Conference at the University of Bolton, presented by the University of Bolton and University Centre at Blackburn College in partnership with the Leisure Studies Association
The Centre for Worktown Studies invites you to its eighth annual Recording Leisure Lives conference on 22nd March 2016. The theme of the conference is intended to provoke discussion and debate on what have historically been perceived as ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ uses of leisure and the cultural constructions of these perceptions. It invokes consideration of policy and action intended to address ‘wrong’ uses of leisure and also that which promoted a ‘right’ use of leisure as a moral safeguard. It provides scope to pursue issues of identity in leisure, leisure and alternative lifestyles, respectability, place and space. It is of particular relevance to the leisure of young people and the voluntary organisations which have provided leisure opportunities for them; also of interest are those leisure associations which have challenged the political and cultural status quo.
