About

Paradoxes of Play: What We Think Play Is and Isn’t

The study of play is filled with contradictions. We celebrate children’s skill through play, and yet are often in the position of interfering. Play is considered an extra, a nicety, but is one of the most complex layered forms of communication on the planet. This talk will address key contradictions in the literature and invite us to see how we can support the complexity of children’s own creative expression.
