Livestreamad disputas | Skogens «blå bånd»: Fremveksten av Oslomarka som friluftsområde, av Iver Mytting, Norges idrettshøgskole
Da Oslomarka gjekk frå villmark til park, føregjekk prosessen på fleire parallelle plan. I avhandlinga si tar Mytting opp framveksten og tilblivinga av Oslomarka som friluftsområde. Ifølgje Mytting er det først og fremst i mellomkrigstida at Marka blir til som en tydelig definerbar størrelse, som «ein eigen entitet i verda». Mytting framstiller Marka som eit frambrakt rom, eller ein fortidig romleg konstellasjon, samstundes som han ettergår dei prosessane som skapte nettopp dette rommet.

Call for Papers | “Enacting Leisure: Recreating Leisure”, Leisure Studies Association Conference | Leeds Beckett University, UK, 4–6 July 2017
Research in the field of leisure studies emphasises the role played by leisure as part of people’s everyday lives. It requires a measure of reflexivity and an intersectional appreciation of the situatedness of what we study. The aims of this conference are (1) To explore the ways in which leisure has been and is enacted around us; and (2) To explore ways in which leisure, and leisure studies, can be and are being re-created now.
