Australian and New Zealand Association of Leisure Studies 2011 conference call for papers (apologies for multiple posting)
Australian and New Zealand Association of Leisure Studies Biennial Conference, 6 – 8th December 2011, Dunedin, New Zealand
CALL FOR PAPERS
The 10th Australian and New Zealand Association of Leisure Studies (ANZALS) biennial conference will take place from the 6th to the 8th of December 2011 in Dunedin, New Zealand. The conference will consist of keynote presentations from Catherine Healy (National Coordinator of the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective), Professor Chris Rojek (University of Brunel, UK), and Associate Professor Jim Sibthorp (University of Utah) and a variety of presentation sessions and workshops.
To help democratise the conference and develop synergises a variety of people from around the world have already volunteered to convene a diverse array of themed sessions. In addition, the conference committee welcomes the submission of papers which might not fit into one of the themed sessions, with further sessions to be developed in line with the nature of the papers received. Consequently, this is a call for anyone interested in potentially presenting a paper at the conference on issues related to leisure, recreation, tourism, travel, hospitality, events, and/or sport to submit abstracts for their papers to either a themed session or to the conference in general. Details of the themed sessions are being announced separately via e-lists and are available on the conference website and below. If you do not think your paper is appropriate for one of the themed sessions please submit your abstract directly to the conference organising committee (anzals2011@...) who will review your abstract and allocate it to an appropriate session.
Abstracts for the general conference call for papers (limited to 250 words) should be submitted as an attachment to anzals2011@.... Please ensure that abstracts include all author names, institutions and an email contact for the lead author. Any special presentation equipment (e.g. slide projector) required should be noted in the email in which the abstract is submitted. Abstracts for any of the themed sessions should be emailed to the convener of the appropriate session.
The abstracts of all the papers presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings. In addition, a special conference issue of Annals of Leisure Research will be published that includes peer-reviewed papers submitted from conference presenters. Any author who wishes their work to be considered for potential publication in Annals of Leisure Research should note this on their email when they submit their abstract. If you are submitting an abstract to a themed session that you would also like to have considered for potential publication in the special issue of Annals of Leisure Research please send your abstract to both the themed session convener/s and to anzals2011@....
Abstracts for the general conference papers should be submitted by 16th of May, 2011 (please note that some of the themed sessions may have different submission deadlines). Authors will be notified of acceptance of their abstract for presentation at the conference by 10th of June. Authors who have asked that their work be considered for potential publication in Annals of Leisure Research will be informed at this time if they should submit a full paper for review. Full papers for potential publication in the special issue of Annals of Leisure Research should be submitted to anzals2011@... by 12th of August, 2011.
