      Sporting and Cultural Events: Contested Legacies 
      Whereas the language of legacy has dominated sport and cultural event 
      narratives over the last two decades, in recent years there has been a greater 
      recognition that the outcomes of these events do not happen automatically but instead 
      need 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 policy 
      communities there is debate over the most useful strategies and tactics used to ensure 
      that the beneficiaries of these events are considered in advance, during delivery and in 
      the period beyond (Chalip, 2006; HM Government, 2013). 
      On one level, sporting and cultural events have been credited with the potential 
      to change perceptions of cities and nations and act as a catalyst for change. Yet, on 
      another, there is contestation over the value of these events and their impact on the 
      people and places affected by their delivery. 
      This Special Issue invites papers from those presenting at the 2014 Leisure 
      Studies Association Annual Conference, Sport, Festivity and Digital Cultures - hosted 
      at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) - but also the wider interdisciplinary 
      academic community studying the event phenomenon in the following areas, amongst 
       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/resistance
