Pecha-kucha on play

Pecha-kucha presentations contain exactly 20 slides that are displayed for 20 seconds each. The slides contain no text, only images, and in the following video are accompanied by my critical take on the discourses of play in the context of Global North, as well as on pedagogical possibilities of play that critical scholarship may offer us.
