Child's Play by Kate Darian-Smith

Book Description

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.

Children, Childhood and Cultural Heritage by Kate Darian-Smith Children, Childhood and Cultural Heritage, Paperback (November 2012)

Children, Childhood and Cultural Heritage explores how the everyday experiences of children, and their imaginative and creative worlds, are collected, interpreted and displayed in museums and on monuments, and represented through objects and cultural lore.

On the Home Front by Kate Darian-Smith On the Home Front, Paperback (March 2009)

During WWII, the people of Melbourne experienced years of social dislocation and increased government interference in all aspects of daily life. As women left their homes to replace men in factories and offices, the traditional roles of women were challenged, and the presence of US soldiers raised questions about Australian identity.
