Natural Environments and Leisure among Rural–to–Urban Immigrants: An Application of Bourdieu's Concepts of Habitus, Social and Cultural Capital, and Field
Horolets, Anna ; Stodolska, Monika ; Peters, Karin - \ 2018
Leisure Sciences 41 (2018)4. - ISSN 0149-0400 - p. 313 - 329.
capital - field - habitus - leisure - natural environments - rural-to-urban immigrants
This study explored the use of natural environments for leisure among rural-to-urban immigrants by adopting Bourdieu's concepts of habitus, social and cultural capital, and field. Data were collected with the use of individual interviews with 27 participants, including Mexican immigrants in the United States, Ukrainian immigrants in Poland, Moroccan immigrants in the Netherlands, and Turkish immigrants in Germany. The findings showed that for some immigrants, practices of social capital maintenance became disconnected from recreation in natural environments, while for all participants, nature-related cultural capital had low transferability in a migratory situation. Depending on their position in a new social field, immigrants developed different strategies to use local natural environments for leisure. Some strategies contributed to preserving old habitus, while one strategy (finding substitutes) contributed to gradual changes in immigrants' nature-related habitus. We suggest that embodied and emplaced skills of using nature should be incorporated in the notion of cultural capital.
Beyond Ethnic Stereotypes – Identities and Outdoor Recreation Among Immigrants and Nonimmigrants in the Netherlands
Kloek, Marjolein E. ; Buijs, Arjen E. ; Boersema, Jan J. ; Schouten, Matthijs G.C. - \ 2017
Leisure Sciences 39 (2017)1. - ISSN 0149-0400 - p. 59 - 78.
ethnicity - identity - leisure - natural environment - public support

Studies on immigrants' recreational use of greenspace have tended to focus on ethnic groups as homogeneous entities. In a qualitative study based on group interviews, this article focuses on the cultural diversity among and within ethnic groups. We used an identity perspective to study outdoor recreation of young Dutch adults with Chinese, Turkish, or nonimmigrant backgrounds. Results show that primarily personal identities, age, and ethnicity inform recreational behavior. The multiplicity of peoples' identities results in more heterogeneity between and within ethnic groups, as well as more homogeneity between immigrants and nonimmigrants, than commonly described. When immigrants are considered as a homogeneous group that underparticipates in outdoor recreation, individual immigrants who frequently participate in outdoor recreation are overlooked. Furthermore, we show that acculturation does not progress at the same rate among all ethnic groups, and that ethnic identity may be sustained among second and subsequent generations through certain recreational activities.

The tourist experience of out-there-ness: theory and empirical research
Elands, B.H.M. ; Lengkeek, J. - \ 2012
Forest Policy and Economics 19 (2012). - ISSN 1389-9341 - p. 31 - 38.
phenomenological approach - leisure
Forest and nature managers are confronted with an increasing number of tourists visiting National Parks, nature reserves and forest areas. Not all tourists, however, have or prefer the same experiences. In this study, we develop a theory on the nature of tourist experiences by proposing tourism as a way of distancing oneself from everyday reality, conceptualised in terms of out-there-ness. Experience is conceived of as conscious awareness, embedded in relatively stable mental structures, and manifested as a dynamic precondition for immediate responses to tourist practices. These preconditions are theoretically translated into different modes of experience, which are empirically tested. The results show that the theoretical modes of the experience of out-there-ness have considerable empirical support. We present these results in relation to practical applicability for policy-making, planning and design
The Critical Turn in Tourism Studies; Creating an academy of hope

In today’s increasingly complex tourism environment, decision-making requires a rounded, well-informed view of the whole. Critical distance should be encouraged, consultation and intellectual rigour should be the norm amongst managers and there needs to be a radical shift in our approach to educating future tourism and hospitality managers and researchers. This book intends to move the debate forward by exploring how critical tourism inquiry can make a difference in the world, linking tourism education driven by the values of empowerment, partnership and ethics to policy and practice. This book is designed to enable its reader to think through vital concepts and theories relating to tourism and hospitality management, stimulate critical thinking and use multidisciplinary perspectives. The book is organized around three key ways of producing social change in and through tourism: critical thinking, critical education and critical action.
Living together in multi-ethnic neighbourhoods; The meaning of public spaces for issues of social integration.

This study examines the daily life in multi-ethnic neighbourhoods, and how people with different ethnic backgrounds live together. My research shows that positive experiences in public spaces contribute to feeling at home in a multi-ethnic neighbourhood. Not only intense and lasting contacts, but also short interactions contribute to feeling at home somewhere. By being in public space, relationships are formed with these spaces and with other people; residents feel at home and as such, integration has taken place. I therefore want to emphasize that politicians should look at the everyday realities in neighbourhoods like Lombok when discussing issues related to multi-ethnic societies. Repeatedly stressing the dichotomy between native and non-native Dutch citizens and focusing on problems, has a negative effect on the everyday lives of people because it produces and reproduces stereotyped images. I believe that integration is not only about non-native Dutch residents adapting themselves to Dutch society: it is also about the extent to which people from various backgrounds live together and feel at home in their neighbourhood.

Real Tourism; Practice, Care, and Politics in Contemporary Travel Culture
Minca, C. ; Oakes, T. - \ 2011

toerisme - reizen - theorie - toekomst - vrije tijd - sociologie - tourism - travel - theory - future - leisure - sociology
Over the past decade, tourism studies has broken out of its traditional institutional affiliation with business and management programs to take its legitimate place as an interdisciplinary social science field of cutting edge scholarship. The field has emerged as central to ongoing debates in social theory concerning such diverse topics as postcolonialism, mobility, and postmodernism, to name just a few. While there has been a diverse body of empirical research on this transformation the theoretical discussions in tourism studies remain largely attached to theories of modernity and Anglo-centric assumptions about tourism. There is a need for the field to come to terms theoretically with the contemporary and future realities of tourism as a truly global phenomenon. This book puts forward new postmodernist ideas and arguments about tourism today and in the future.
Mass Movement naar recreatieve gebieden : overzicht van methoden om bezoekersaantallen te meten

Om gegevens over recreatiebezoek in specifieke, bij naam genoemde gebieden te kunnen achterhalen, hebben we een analyse gemaakt van de volgende methoden: (i) het ContinuVrijeTijdsOnderzoek (CVTO), (ii) methoden gebruikt door natuur- en recreatie-beherende instanties, (iii) methoden met behulp van nieuwe media en (iv) de Hotspotmonitor. De voor- en nadelen van de verschillende methoden zijn beschreven. Het CVTO levert alleen gebruiksgegevens over type omgevingen. Systematisch een jaar rond tellen wordt door natuur- en recreatiebeherende instanties nauwelijks gedaan. De privacy-wetgeving laat het analyseren van GSM-data niet toe en ook de ruimtelijke onnauwkeurigheid en onvolledigheid in typen recreanten (alleen toeristen of alleen recreanten met een internetaccount) spelen een beperkende rol. Bij een combinatie van methoden zijn er geen verhoudingsgetallen te genereren waarmee betrouwbare uitspraken kunnen worden gedaan over het aantal bezoeken per jaar van specifieke, bij naam genoemde natuur- en recreatiegebieden.

Het Kenniscentrum Recreatie is in 2009 gestart met een debat getiteld 'Het ideale vrijetijdslandschap'. Doel van dit debat is inzicht te krijgen in zowel de wensen als de realisatie van het ideale Nederlandse vrijetijdslandschap. In dit Forum wordt aandacht besteedt aan dit debat. De eerste bijdrage 'Groen nabij de stad: Mooie woorden of daadkrachtig beleid? van Rob Berkers (Kenniscentrum Recreatie), gaat in op de rol van de overheid bij het realiseren van voldoende groen in de directe leefomgeving. In reactie op zijn stuk, wordt Hans Thiebou aan het woord gelaten in 'Natuur en recreatie in en om de stad, een verrijking voor onze samenleving'. Vanuit het perspectief van Natuur- en Recreatieschap De Hollandse Biesbosch Nationaal Landschap laat hij zien dat de procedures weliswaar lang duren, maar dat het wel de moeite waard blijft erin te blijven investeren. Tot slot een betoog van Marie-Ange de Kort (Hogeschool INHolland) getiteld 'Het ideale vrijetijdslandschap: weinig ruimte, veel vrije tijd'. Hierin stelt zij dat de ontwikkelingen van steden en platteland sterk van elkaar verschillen en dat de overheid een belangrijke regiefunctie heeft om deze goed op elkaar af te stemmen. Bovendien zouden gemeenten ook volgens haar meer met elkaar moeten samenwerken om als regio een uniek aanbod te kunnen creëren
Leisure in a Multicultural Society

Leisure practices and public space, second chapter. Karin Peters discusses ethnic diversity and leisure from three perspectives. She first looks at the leisure patterns in terms of ethnic participation. Based on theories of marginality and ethnicity, she argues that both socio-economic and sociocultural aspects partly explain differences in leisure behaviour.

Brinkhuijsen onderzoekt in haar dissertatie hoe recreatie in de loop van de twintigste eeuw een plek kreeg in het landschap en het landschapsontwerp, van de pioniersperiode (voor W.O. II), de massacrecreatie (jaren zestig), het recreatief medegebruik (rond 1980) to de huidige periode, die Brinkhuijsen kenmerkt met "verbreding". Ze analyseert ontwerpen die invloed hebben uitgeoefend op de manier waarop we recreatielandschappen nu zien, zoals het Amsterdamse Bos uit 1934, kleinschalige recreatielandschappen en een netwerk van fietspaden en wandelpaden in de landinrichting Oukoop-Kortrijk uit 1966, natuurontwikkelingsprojecten in het rivierengebied uit de jaren tachtig en negentig en de landschapsvisie voor de Drentsche Aa uit 2005. De achteraf wat schokkende conclusie luidt dat recreatie nauwelijks van belang is geweest in het landschapsontwerp

In the early nineteenth century, many people worked themselves to death, eighteen hours a day, six days a week, with no days off. Leisure time was scarce. Only few people had the time and means to repose, divert and travel. Leisure and tourism were the privilege of a small elite. But times have changed. In Europe, the average amount of free time has gradually increased to 4-6 hours a day and a wide range of leisure and tourist opportunities have come within reach in contemporary society. This essay was based on some introductory reports of the project Landscape and leisure, describing trends and impacts, facts and figures concerning leisure and landscape in Europe
