Professor Tony Blackshaw

Professor of Leisure Studies and Sociology


Tony is Professor of Leisure Studies and Sociology. He joined Hallam at the turn of the century. He is author of ten books and numerous refereed journal articles. As his job title suggests, Tony has particular expertise in the sociology of leisure, but he has published on a variety of other topics, including sport and community studies, and is known internationally for his work on the sociology of Zygmunt Bauman. In recognition of the diversity of his expertise, he has been invited scholar at a number of universities across the world as well as at organisations outside the academy, including L’Oréal (Paris) and the research and technology company Substance.
