BIN Norden conference 2014 Accepted panel ________________________________________ Concepts of Play and Play Culture for the 21st Century Participants in the panel are: Associate professor Herdis Toft, University of Southern Denmark (organizer), Professor Beth Juncker, University of Copenhagen, Associate professor Carsten Jessen, Aarhus University, Assistant professor Helle Skovbjerg Karoff, University of Aalborg and Assistant professor Rikke Toft Nørgård, Aarhus University. This panel represents and discusses different concepts of play and play culture in both diachronic and synchronic dimensions. For several centuries western theorists, for instance Baumgarten, Schiller, Huizinga, Caillois, Sutton Smith, Vygotsky, Bateson, Salen & Zimmerman, Flemming Mouritsen and later on the panel participants, have discussed the concept of play and play culture. They have presented their own theoretical, methodological foundation and methodical course of action, each of them stating their own positioning in both ontological and epistemological respect. They also have delivered different corner stones to face scientific, institutional and societal challenges. Is it possible to bring their contributions together in the same transdisciplinary discourse? The research questions to be addressed in this panel are: • Which is your theoretical framework and why have you chosen it as relevant for the 21st century? • How do you conceive the concept of play in relation to concepts of e.g. culture, media, learning, design, age and gender? • How do you conceive the concept of play in relation to concepts of ‘the magic circle’ and of atmosphere (mood) and aesthetics (mode)?
