New Issue of Play and Folklore Out Now

Play and Folklore

Issue 63 of Play and Folklore can now be viewed on the Museum Victoria website — here.

In this edition, co-editor June Factor pays tribute to “influential and erudite play scholar”, Brian Sutton-Smith, who passed away on March 7th. Included is the obituary shared with his many play colleagues by his family.

Play and Folklore is a forum for discussion about childhood and children’s culture. It publishes articles, letters, memoirs and research studies that examine what children do when largely free of adult direction or control – their colloquial speech, songs, games, rhymes, riddles, jokes, insults and secret languages, their friendships and enmities, and their beliefs and hopes.
