The IAPS meeting at the next Central APA (in Chicago) features Stephen Schmid. In “Reconsidering Autotelic Play” (JPS 36.2) and “Beyond Autotelic Play,” (JPS 38.2), Schmid challenges the view that play necessarily is an autotelic activity and presents his own view of the nature and value of play. The APA panel will revisit and discuss the arguments and ideas raised in these papers. Hope to see you there!
Time: Thursday, Feb 22, 7:40 pm – 10:40 pm.
Topic: The Nature and Value of Play
Chair: Shawn E. Klein (Arizona State University)
Speaker: Stephen E. Schmid (University of Wisconsin–Rock County)
- Adam Berg (University of North Carolina at Greensboro)
