Great narratives and experimental methodologies successfully capture empirical, everyday experiences
Jayne Caudwell & Darragh McGee’s edited volume Human Rights and Events, Leisure and Sport (Routledge) originated as a special issue of the Leisure Studies journal. In ten chapters, various mega events and other social phenomena are studied from the point of view of human rights. In his review, Lasse Frandsen takes a closer look at two instances, the Calais Jungle refugee camp and the São Paulo Pride 2017.
Leisure Studies is the journal of the Leisure Studies Association. The emphasis of the journal is on theoretically informed critical analyses within the social sciences and humanities of the wide range of topics that constitute leisure as a subject field – including the arts, tourism, cultural, informal and virtual activities, urban and rural recreation, sport, media and physical activities.
