Within events management, events are commonly categorised within two axes, size and content. Along the size axis events range between the small scale and local, through major events, which garner greater media interest, to internationally significant hallmark and mega events such as the Edinburgh Festival and the Tour de France. Content is frequently divided into three forms – culture, sport or business. However, such frameworks overlook and depoliticise a significant variety of events, those more accurately construed as protest. This book brings together new research and theories from around the world and across sociology, leisure studies, politics and cultural studies to develop a new critical pedagogy and critical theory of events. It is the first research monograph that deals explicitly with the concept of critical event studies (CES), the idea that it is impossible to explore and understand events without understanding the wider social, cultural and political contexts. It addresses questions such as can the occupation and reclamation of specific spaces by activists be understood as events within its framework? And is the activity of activists in these spaces a leisure activity? If those, and other similar activities, can be read as events and leisure, what does admitting them into the scope of events management and leisure studies mean for our understanding of them and how the study of events management is to be conceptualised? This title will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students on events management and related courses and scholars interested in understanding the ways in which events are constructed by the social, the cultural and the political.

This book brings together the established field of political communication and the emerging field of critical event studies to develop new questions and approaches. Using this combined framework, it reflects upon how we should understand the expression of democratic participation in mainstream mass media during the 2015 UK General Election and the 2016 referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU. Are we now living in an era where democratic participation is much more concerned with spectacle rather than substantive debate? The book addresses this conceptual journey and reflects on differing models of democratic participation, before applying that framework to the two identified case studies. Finally, the authors consider what it means to be living in a period of democratic spectacle, where political events have become evental politics. The book will be of use to students and scholars across the fields of political science and culture and media studies, as well as wide readers interested in the current issues facing British politics.

Most early social research into planned events had the effect of broadcasting narratives of dominant cultures and privileged groups. More recently, however, convergences of gender, sexualities, ethnicities, age, class, religion, and intersectional analyses and events studies have started to drive new critical understanding of the impacts of events on non-mainstream, non-majority communities around the globe. This timely book addresses current gaps in the literature surrounding issues of accessibility, inclusion, and diversity in various event landscapes. Structured into four sections covering the main types of events, the chapters present original topics using innovative methodological approaches. Each chapter employs a case study to illustrate the key intertwining issues in these various experiential realms. Further, the chapters are all cross- or interdisciplinary, drawing on gender, sexualities, cultural, race/ethnicity studies as well as multiple literatures that feed into critical events studies and exploring a variety of global examples. This significant book opens the path to further research on the role and importance of accessibility, inclusion, and diversity in events environments worldwide. It will be of interest to academics and researchers of critical event studies as well as a number of related social science disciplines.

This landmark publication brings together some of the most perceptive commentators of the present moment to explore core ideas and cutting edge developments in the field of Leisure Studies. It offers important new insights into the dynamics of the transformation of leisure in contemporary societies, tracing the emergent issues at stake in the discipline and examining Leisure Studies’ fundamental connections with cognate disciplines such as Sociology, Cultural Studies, History, Sport Studies and Tourism. This book contains original work from key scholars across the globe, including those working outside the Leisure Studies mainstream. It showcases the state of the art of contemporary Leisure Studies, covering key topics and key thinkers from the psychology of leisure to leisure policy, from Bourdieu to Baudrillard, and suggests that leisure in the 21st century should be understood as centring on a new ‘Big Seven’ (holidays, drink, drugs, sex, gambling, TV and shopping). No other book has gone as far in redefining the identity of the discipline of Leisure Studies, or in suggesting how the substantive ideas of Leisure Studies need to be rethought. The Routledge Handbook of Leisure Studies should therefore be the intellectual guide of first choice for all scholars, academics, researchers and students working in this subject area.

Wie wird kollektive Identität in einer sozialen Bewegung konstruiert? Wie wird dadurch gemeinsames Handeln ermöglicht? Tatiana Golova geht der Annahme nach, dass Prozesse kollektiver Identitätsbildung unter anderem mittels interaktiver Raumproduktion im Alltag ablaufen: Indem Bewegungsaktivisten temporäre oder langfristige Räume in der Stadt durchsetzen, entwickeln sie kollektive Macht. Dieses Buch schlägt ein theoretisches Konzept der Verräumlichung kollektiver Identität vor und wendet es in einer ethnographischen Studie der Berliner »linken Szene« an. Neben Szenekneipen werden Freiraum-Diskurse und Demonstrationen in Bezug auf die Mobilisierung und die emotional-körperliche Identitätskonstruktion untersucht.

Seit Beginn der 1990er Jahre, als der Zuzug von Spätaussiedlern aus der ehemaligen UdSSR seinen Höhepunkt erreichte, wächst in Deutschland das wissenschaftliche Interesse an den Russlanddeutschen, an ihrer Geschichte, ihrer Migration sowie ihrer Situation in der deutschen Gesellschaft. Auch die Beiträge dieses Bandes widmen sich diesen Themen. Was sie jedoch über ihren aktuellen Bezug hinaus auszeichnet, ist die deutsch-russische Zusammensetzung der Autoren, die sich den Gegenstand aus ihrer jeweils eigenen Perspektive aneignen und dabei ein vielschichtiges Bild zeichnen.

Bewegungsengagement ist nicht nur eine Frage politischer Überzeugung. Wenn es dauerhaft sein soll, verbinden sich für die AktivistInnen oft Alltag und Politik zu einem untrennbaren Ganzen. Wie diese Verbindung sich in Prozessen kollektiver Identität niederschlägt, untersucht der Autor am Beispiel der Autonomen und der Schwulenbewegung.

Obwohl sich die Beiträge zur qualitativ-empirischen Sozialforschung derzeit großer Aufmerksamkeit erfreuen, lassen sich noch immer Lücken im Hinblick darauf erkennen, inwieweit die geplanten Anwendungen sachhaltig sind und Erkenntnisfortschritte ermöglichen. Diesem Mangel will dieser Band entgegentreten.
