GOMES, Christianne. Leisure, recreation and interculturalism from the "South" of the world: current challenges. Polis [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.26, pp.199-220. ISSN 0718-6568.

This article aims to expand critical analysis on leisure and interculturality in Latin America . The discussion was based on a bibliographic search and analyzes modernity, the ideology of progress and the dichotomies that limit the conceptions on human beings and the world. The text also proposes to discuss the potentiality of leisure to enrich the educational practices arising from different languages, considering the relevance of intercultural, critical and transformative education. As a dimension of culture, leisure can be a social time-space of resignification and empowerment, helping to stimulate sensibilities and help the understanding of Latin American context in an intercultural perspective, encouraging a critical thinking about societies, in the search for social transformation, committed to the building of a humane and solidary world.

Palabras clave : Leisure; recreation; interculturality; Latin America; transformative education.
