Stuart Lester

Stuart is a senior lecturer in play and playwork at the University of Gloucestershire and an independent trainer and consultant. Key research interests focus on the nature and value of children’s play, playful production of time/space through everyday encounters and the conditions under which children’s (and adults) playfulness may thrive.

Published work includes ‘Play for a Change’: ‘Play, Policy and Practice: A review of contemporary perspectives and Children’s right to play: an examination of the importance of play in the lives of children worldwide’ (both with Wendy Russell). He has also contributed to a number of play and playwork publications, the most recent of which include ‘Playing in a Deleuzian playground’; ‘Rethinking children’s participation in democratic processes: a right to play’, ‘Utopian Visions of Childhood and Play in English Social Policy’ (with Wendy Russell), and ‘Leopard Skin Wellies, a Top Hat and a Vacuum Cleaner Hose: An analysis of Wales’ Play Sufficiency Assessment Duty’ (with Wendy Russell)

Stuart’s workshop draws upon material developed for his PhD thesis
