Leisure, Gender, Sexuality and the Body

Wednesday, 13 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Dachgeschoss (Juridicum)
RC13 Sociology of Leisure (host committee)

Language: English

Leisure shapes our bodies, and constructs and constrains those bodies, as well as genders and sexualities. In the new century, people have claimed that leisure spaces provide unique places for challenging gender norms and biology. Others say that leisure is a place where such norms about gender and body image are reproduced. In this session, we call for papers that explore the multiple roles for leisure in embodiment, gender and sexualities.
