THEMES OF SPORT AND RECREATION IN WOMEN'S BIOGRAPHICAL NARRATIVES
Languages of publication
Autobiographical narratives construct the picture of the self-identity of the author. Important life events are chosen to create and confirm the meaningful life course of the narrator. The following analysis is based on autobiographical narratives collected among middle and lower class women who lived in Slovakia in the course of the 20th century. In their narrations marginal references could be found on leisure, recreation and sport. Those concepts were a part of the life-style/habitus of middle class people. According to the autobiographical narratives the changes of social and economic life conditions of the lower class - rural population in the second half of the 20th century showed itself also by tendencies to get closer to the life style which included recreation, leisure, sports and travel.
