NEW SERIES: Palgrave Studies In Play, Performance, Learning, and DevelopmentPalgrave Studies In Play, Performance, Learning, and Development provides a needed home for cross-disciplinary scholarship linking play and performance to learning and development across the life span, thus educating a new generation of researchers and educators about the promise of play and performance as powerful catalysts for social-emotional-cognitive growth and successful learning.
Series Editor: Lois Holzman, Ph.D. is co-founder and director of the East Side Institute for Group and Short Term Psychotherapy and co-founder of the biannual Performing the World conferences. A developmental psychologist internationally recognized as a pioneer of a culturally- and performatory-based approach to human development and learning, her approach to learning and learning environments builds on the work of Lev Vygotsky, who advanced the understanding of learning in early childhood as social, cultural, improvisational and playful. Holzman’s books include Lev Vygotsky: Revolutionary Scientist (with Fred Newman), Vygotsky at Work and Play; Schools for Growth: Radical Alternatives to Current Educational Models; and Performing Psychology: A Postmodern Culture of the Mind. She is a commentator on Psychology Today ("A Conceptual Revolution") and of the blog, "A Psychology of Becoming."
