Researching in or around leisure studies? Love a great conference? Always wanted to visit New Zealand?

If the answer to any of these questions is ‘Yes’ then we have the perfect answer – come to the Australia and New Zealand Association for Leisure Studies conference in Queenstown in December 2019!

This is a gentle reminder that abstract submissions close in just two weeks on 15 May, and all details of submission can be found here:

You may find a home for your work in one of the 9 themed sessions on offer, but if not then you are more than welcome to submit to the open session – and we will then group like-minded presentations together wherever possible.

Students are encouraged to check out the Higher Degree Research Student workshop, and apply to the generous ANZALS HDR Student Scholarship scheme which covers full conference and workshop registration costs! See the website for eligibility criteria and application information!
