Recreation specialization: re-conceptualization from a social worlds perspective

Recreation specialization: re-conceptualization from a social worlds perspective

Journal of Leisure Research 24(1): 33-51

The paper initiated the development of a theory of recreation specialization from a social worlds perspective and provided empirical testing for some of the stated propositions. Recreation specialization was re-conceptualized as (1) a process by which recreation social worlds and sub-worlds segment and intersect into new recreation sub-worlds, and (2) the subsequent ordered arrangement of these sub-worlds and their members along a continuum.
