CFP: Journal of Playwork Practice

To coincide with the second Journal of Playwork Practice research seminar in November 2015 on the theme of ‘playwork literature’, this call for papers focuses on the nature and purpose of literature in playwork practice and research.

We would particularly welcome papers on the following themes:

  • critical examinations or appreciations of individual works by playwork authors
  • literature reviews on theories currently in use in playwork, such as ‘loose parts’, ‘play value’ and ‘play types’
  • explorations of the term ‘playwork literature’ and what this might mean within the context of contemporary playwork practice and research
  • biographical essays on contemporary and historical playwork authors
