The Association for the Study of Play (TASP)
Play and Culture Series, Volume 11

CALL FOR PAPERS: Due Date March 31, 2009

Play and Performance

Recently play research has expanded in an exciting direction to
include the study of performance. In addition to papers that more
broadly focus on the investigation of play, the 11th volume of the
Play and Culture series will showcase the work of scholars and
practitioners who explore the relationships between play,
performance, development, and learning.

Play and performance share some important characteristics. Both
include imagination and creativity. In addition, because they are not
so closely tied to "reality" both play and performance provide
opportunities for people to experiment with and create new ways of
being, seeing and relating. Such playful and performatory activities
have theoretical implications for developmental and educational
psychology and practical implications for ongoing learning and
development at all ages. In addition, studies of play and performance
are important in relation to the development of human capital and the
creation of practices that address issues of social justice and equity.
Manuscripts for the 11th Volume of the Play and Culture Series can include:
    * Reports on research into the use of performance in a range of
settings (i.e. school; therapeutic settings; afterschool; community
organizations; workplace)
    * Reflective reports on programs and practices for children,
young people and adults that make use of performance and play
    * Theoretical explorations of the relationships among
performance, play, development and learning
    * In addition to papers on performance, the editor will accept a
number of papers that represent the scholarly disciplines engaged in
the investigation of play
