Mini Lecture: Consuming Social Life? Understanding the Sociology of Leisure

University event offered by Birmingham City University

Full Event Details:

Sociology has tended to ignore the role of social space in shaping the lives and experiences of individuals in society, often seeing it as the background against which social life plays out. Drawing on the ‘spatial’ turn within sociology as well as the discipline of human geography, this mini lecture will examine the ways in which space and place shape our everyday lives. Using examples of leisure spaces (e.g., the pub, restaurants, shopping centres, carnivals and fun fairs, and other places of consumption), we will think about how people are constituted into these specific spaces and places and how they facilitate place-based identities, community-making practices, spatial politics of in/exclusion as well as informal social control and the regulation of space.
