TASP 2017 Annual Conference

The organizing committee has chosen the theme of Playful Communities for the 2017 conference. Communities exist at multiple levels from classrooms, neighborhoods, and cities to entire nations and the world. None is homogenous and some are more diverse than others, but transcending this diversity are the ubiquity and power of play. Play keeps communities healthy, unified, and adaptable through times of prosperity and tragedy.
In the spirit of this theme, we are pleased to announce that the keynote speakers for the 2017 conference are play theorist Bernie De Koven, author of The Well-Played Game, and associate professor of popular culture Montana Miller, author of Playing Dead. In addition, there will be a special tribute to Jim Christie and the many contributions he made to our community of play practitioners, researchers, and advocates.
Play can be examined at multiple levels, from many perspectives, and in different species. Therefore, we are eager to bring together a diverse group of researchers, practitioners, and advocates, both those new to play and those who have made it their life’s work. We are especially interested in extending the reach of TASP to emerging fields and arenas of practice that could enrich and be enriched by our experiences together at the 2017 annual meeting.
