How do the games children play resemble, recall or depart from the games of their parents and grandparents? How can memories of the play of previous generations be made tangible through immersive media, in museums and playgrounds?

This lecture draws on an EPSRC-funded project in which archives of play from 20,000 children of the 1950s and 60s at the Bodleian Library and British Library are revoiced by today’s children for an interactive installation at the V&A Museum of Childhood.

Led by the UCL Institute of Education, in partnership with CASA at the Bartlett and the University of Sheffield, this project promotes inter-generational dialogue about play, and finds new connections between traditional and media-based games.
