Call for Proposals: Leisure Studies Special Issue

 Call for Special Issue Proposals for Leisure Studies 

The Managing Editors of Leisure Studies welcome proposals from colleagues wishing to edit a special issue of the journal. We welcome proposals which address any topic which advances the theoretical, empirical and conceptual knowledge bases of leisure studies, for example: 

  • • Leisure technologies 
  • • More than human leisure 
  • • Leisure, work and precarious (un)employment 
  • • Leisure and inequalities 
  • • Leisure and conflict 
  • • Leisure and gaming 
  • • Leisure and health 
  • • Family leisure 
  • • Leisure and climate change 
  • • Leisure and neurodivergence 
  • • Leisure events 
  • • Dark/deviant leisure 
  • • Leisure futures 

Colleagues wishing to propose a Special Issue should submit an outline of up to 1,000 words which summarises the key aims and proposed theme(s) to be explored, how the issue will build upon work published previously in the journal and field more widely, and topics on which papers would be sought. A short CV (no more than 2 pages) for each editor outlining their expertise, relevant publications and editorial experience should also be submitted. We particularly invite proposals from colleagues based in the Global South. 

Proposals should be sent by email to Professor Thomas Fletcher, Managing Editor, no later than end of day 30th November 2023: 

Shortlisted proposals will be considered by the Managing Editors and Leisure Studies Editorial Board in January 2024, with outcomes communicated as soon as possible thereafter. It is anticipated that the selected special issues will be published between 2025 and 2027 by agreement with the Guest Editors.
