Keith Hart commented on Jean-Pierre Rossie's blog post Recognizing children's culture as integral part of the heritage of humanity
"It is true that Thierry Wendling writes about adult games, but I know he has also studies the way children make up rules for their games. It would be worth contacting him, although I don't know what he has published on the subject."

I just became a member of Open Anthropology Cooperative and would like to find out if there are other scholars:
- working on or interested in children in North Africa and the Sahara, and/or
- doing research on children’s play, games and toys in non-western societies.

As a sociocultural anthropologist I do research on North African and Saharan children in rural areas and popular quarters of towns, and especially on these children's play and toy cultures. In this context I did fieldwork in the Tunisian Sahara (1975, 1977) and continue to do so in Morocco (1992-today). I am interested in tradition but also in the evolution of children's culture and the impact of globalisation. Moreover, I use my information for intercultural activities and global education. For more information see my website www.sanatoyplay.org

Best greetings,

Jean-Pierre Rossie, Ghent, Belgium

Recognizing children's culture as integral part of the heritage of humanity

While sometimes suffering under poverty, sickness and oppression children are at the same time active participants in creating the society and culture in which they grow up.

As far as I could find out, the UNESCO program for safeguarding the tangible and intangible Heritage of Humanity (http://portal.unesco.org/culture) does not… Continue
