Overview

We often see children engaging with media - playing
videogames, trading Pokémon cards, or acting out superhero fantasies. But what do we
know about children's self-directed play in the context of their media cultures?
This book provides in-depth analyses of children's media-referenced play on two
primary school playgrounds in different cities in the UK. Drawing on ethnographic
accounts of children's media-referenced play in UK playgrounds, as well as
historical documents and contemporary media products, this book sets out an in-depth
analysis of the current state of children's playground experiences. The aim of the
book is to provide in-depth case studies of several genres of children's play as
well as making connections to broader theories. The analyses consider a wide range
of concepts including learning, fantasy, communication and issues relating to
identities. As such the book appeals to a large audience covering a variety of
disciplines including folklore, media and cultural studies, education, sociology,
and childhood studies.
