Biography

My research examines play and new technologies in the hands of children, drawing on historical and literary representations of children’s play and culture to understand experiences of childhood today. I have published on young people’s relationship to digital technologies, historical accounts of play, and creative methodologies in research encounters with children and young people. My current project examines two unexplored archives of folklore and children’s play, working with the young people at Golspie High School to examine, respond to and contribute to future archives. With a background in teaching English as a second language, I have taught in diverse contexts around the world for children, young people and adults.
