Children's Playground Games and Songs in the New Media Age: Interim Conference
4 January 2010
Children's Playground Games and Songs in the New Media Age
Thursday 25th February 2010
10:00am – 4:30pm
Large Seminar Room, London Knowledge Lab
This exciting project began in April 2009, under the AHRC’s Beyond Text programme. Its aims are to digitize the Opies’ sound archive of playground games at the British Library, and develop a website; to study games and songs in playgrounds in London and Sheffield, adding material from this study to the BL website; and to adapt a suite of playground games for an interactive play tool such as the Nintendo Wii.
This seminar will offer early presentations from the project, and will also be a chance to hear from prominent researchers in this field.
A detailed programme for the seminar will be finalised in due course.
