Abstract

The article presents an interview with Alan Tomlinson, Professor of Leisure Studies at University of Brighton, UK. When asked about the challenges he faced on entering the field, he cites the challenges in getting realistically teachable syllabuses off the ground which were adequately grounded in the literature of the main. He believes that the high profile of sport has not been particularly beneficial for leisure studies. He has not felt any tensions in his dealings with people in cultural studies.
