World Congress
TOYS, GAMES AND MEDIA

19-22 August 2002
London, England


The 3rd world congress of the International Toy Research Association will
be held in conjunction with the Centre for the Study of Children, Youth &
Media, University of London Institute of Education. The meeting will be
held at the Institute of Education, near Russell Square and the British
Museum.


Call for papers

The International Toy Research Association (ITRA), founded in 1993, is
devoted to the scientific study of toys in all their facets. ITRA brings
together toy researchers from all corners of the globe. This is our third
international meeting to discuss research, collaborate on international
projects, and exchange information with other researchers, students, and
leaders in the toy industry. More than 100 delegates from 15 countries
attended our previous meeting in Halmstad, Sweden.  The London meeting will
exceed those numbers.

Professor David Buckingham founded the Centre for the Study of Children,
Youth and Media in 2000.
It acts as a focus for research and consulting, and for networks of
practitioners in the field.  Current projects focus on the uses of
educational media in the home; migrant/refugee children's uses of the
internet; children's responses to sexual content on television; and media
education in secondary schools and in youth/community work settings.


Conference themes

The themes of the conference are the uses and effects of toys, games and
media; toys as media, and media as toys. A wide range of approaches is
encouraged from the biological, psychological, and social sciences.

Papers, workshops, and symposia are designed to explore any of the
conference themes.  Topics are likely to include:
.     Historical analyses of children's toys and media
.     Aesthetics and cultural identities in children's media
.     Children's patterns of media use
