Child's Play: Dorothy Howard and the Folklore of Australian Children

Author(s): Kate Darian-Smith

Education

Dorothy Howard first documented the play of Australian children in the mid 1950s. Her remarkable finds are detailed here. Humorous and perceptive, she provides a radical perspective on the interaction between a society's economic structure, social mores and ideology. She explores children's traditionalism, inventiveness, their mimicry and subversive mockery. Accompanied by essays from well-known Australians June Factor, Kate Darian Smith and Brian Sutton-Smith.
