"Gender,Leisure and Identity" brings together scholars who have adopted a gendered dimension in their historical studies on leisure. Papers will address among others: women and dance halls; male leisure activities in the Middle Ages, and the male gaze of the camera obscura.
Over the past 30 years, historians have conducted research into a wide range of leisure forms and pursuits, yet until recently 'leisure' as a field of hisotircal enquiry remained ungendered. This conference brings together various scholars and postgraduate students who have adopted a gendered dimension in their research on leisure. Keynote speakers are Clare Langhammer (University of Sussex) and Penny Tinkler (University of Manchester). Papers will address among others male leisure activities in the Middle Ages, women and dancehalls in interwar Britain, and the male gaze of the camera obscura. The conference will take place on 29 June at the University of Glamorgan in Pontypridd (Wales). For a full pogramme and registration details, please contact Henrice Altink.
