- apologises for multiple postingsCALL FOR PAPERSANNALS OF LEISURE RESEARCHSporting and Cultural Events: Contested LegaciesWhereas the language of legacy has dominated sport and cultural eventnarratives over the last two decades, in recent years there has been a greaterrecognition that the outcomes of these events do not happen automatically but insteadneed to be planned, resourced, and led by a range of partners and funders (Misener &Mason, 2010; Foley, et al, 2011; Gratton & Preuss, 2008). In academic and policycommunities there is debate over the most useful strategies and tactics used to ensurethat the beneficiaries of these events are considered in advance, during delivery and inthe period beyond (Chalip, 2006; HM Government, 2013).On one level, sporting and cultural events have been credited with the potentialto change perceptions of cities and nations and act as a catalyst for change. Yet, onanother, there is contestation over the value of these events and their impact on thepeople and places affected by their delivery.This Special Issue invites papers from those presenting at the 2014 LeisureStudies Association Annual Conference, Sport, Festivity and Digital Cultures - hostedat the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) - but also the wider interdisciplinaryacademic community studying the event phenomenon in the following areas, amongstothers: Urban space and zoning Digital and social media Spectatorship, fandom and audiences Citizen-consumer identities Tourism legacies Sport and cultural participation outcomes Policy and planning legacies Volunteer legacies Parasport legacies Events and protest/resistanceSubmission of abstracts:Please send proposed paper title and an abstract of no more than 500 words toguest editors Professor David McGillivray (David.McGillivray@...),Professor Gayle McPherson (Gayle.McPherson@...) and Dr SandroCarnicelli (Sandro.Carnicelli@...) from the University of the West of Scotland, nolater than Monday 15th August 2014.
