Leisure Cultures and G/local Challenges to Nationalist Populist Politics

Aarti Ratna (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issue

Abstract

This special issue (consisting of 10 articles) focuses on the sometimes predictable, sometimes contradictory and conflictual, uses of leisure by a wide array of actors to garner or challenge a populist agenda. The papers showcase the constant tension and unfinished (racial, classed, gendered, ethnic, and sexual) projects embedded in national populist politics. They consider on-the-ground analyses of power asymmetries and forms of populism that manifest and are resisted in/through leisure, uncovering and critically analysing macro-micro levels of resistance, the management of power, and localised experiences of solidarity, conviviality and pleasure.
