‘Dark Play in the Digital Arts’ explored cutting-edge and under-theorised issues in the digital arts, play and playfulness, ‘dark play’ and digital arts-based pedagogies.

The symposium was hosted by the Childhood and Society SIG, which is part of the Centre for Education Research & Scholarship at Middlesex University.

Following on from the symposium is a special issue in Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, entitled ‘Dark Play in Digital Playscapes’, coming out in the Summer of 2017. Access the call for papers here.
